House of Roy is open to any students who are interested in issues of gender identity and sexual orientation. Specifically, House of Roy is a supportive residential learning community where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students and allies can explore and express who they are in a safe and affirming environment.

House of Roy is committed to the following goals:

  • Learning about the history and culture of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and allied communities.
  • Providing a safe space for any student to visit when facing challenges in their life related to their sexuality such as roommate problems or coming out issues.
  • Connecting with the larger Ithaca LGBT and allied community through social events, service opportunities and guest speakers.
  • Promoting an understanding about sexual orientation, gender, and other differences to enhance students’ leadership skills and multicultural awareness.

House of Roy will not be available as a housing option during the 2011-2012 academic year, but stay tuned for more information about the Fall of 2012!
