Gender Separation

Revised:    October 18, 2013

All approved housing properties must provide for the appropriate separation of single male and female students. Men and women may reside in separate buildings within an eligible approved housing property (i.e., a property consisting of discrete buildings). Entrances, parking lot(s), and common areas (e.g., lounges, laundry facilities, exercise rooms, pools, etc.) may be shared between men and women.

Gender shall not be mixed from one wing of a building to another; nor shall it be mixed within buildings.

Eligible properties must explicitly and operationally provide for maintaining appropriate levels of privacy and respect in common areas, protecting against overly casual attitudes and behaviors among and between men and women, and promoting “righteous sociality.”

BYU-Idaho reserves the exclusive right to determine how its policy of separating the sexes should be implemented.
