The Pride Center and Cal Poly University Housing partner with students to create a living-learning environments that encourage academic and personal development for diverse communities. 

Residential Life and Education provides learning outside of the classroom that complements the learning taking place in the classroom in an engaging living-learning environment. It is focused on providing experiences to explore Unlimited Possibilities In Your Home,  which include explorations from academics to career, life skills, and leadership for social change. 

Some specific housing options available to members of the LGBTQ+ community include:

PRIDE Living-Learning Communities

We have two Living-learning communities affiliated with the Pride Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ+) identified students and their allies that specializes in strong community, leadership and identity development and education on issues pertaining to sexual and gender diversity at Cal Poly and in the San Luis Obispo community. 

One is focused on the first-year freshman experience in a traditional residence hall and the other is for continuing students and transfers that features apartment living. These living options features gender-inclusive assignments, gender-inclusive restrooms, and programmatic offerings through the Pride Center. 

Gender Inclusive Clusters

In addition to our living-learning communities, we recognize that many students across our housing system would be more comfortable living with other members of the LGBTQ+ community and/or in housing options inclusive of all genders, gender identities, and expressions (not gendered into male and female spaces).  These clusters are intentional communities throughout all our residential communities designed to meet this need and feature gender-inclusive assignments, gender-inclusive restrooms, and programmatic offerings through the Pride Center.
