Rutgers tries the Harrad Experiment

Rutgers to let some male, female students room together


In the wake of the high-profile suicide of a gay Rutgers University student last fall, the New Jersey college will implement gender-neutral housing in an attempt to make the university more inclusive.

Twenty to 30 students will participate in a pilot program during the 2011-12 school year, which will allow students to choose their roommates regardless of gender. Three dormitories in New Brunswick, New Jersey, will be part of the pilot program, a Rutgers spokesman said.

Students must apply to live in the gender-neutral rooms, which will be reserved for sophomores, juniors and seniors.
