LGBTQ+ Exclusive Flats Coming To University Halls Next Year


SUSU Vice President of Welfare and Community Savanna Cutts has announced plans for LGBTQ+ exclusive flats in the university’s halls of residents, which will be introduced in the 2022/23 academic year.

In a statement on the website, she explained that these plans, suggested by LGBTQ+ Officer Jamie Norton, have been put in place to help students in the LGBTQ+ community feel ‘safe, warm and secure’ during their time in halls.

When applying for halls, students will be able to tick a box to indicate that they would like to be considered for an LGBTQ+ flat. These flats will be for LGBTQ+ students only, but there will be no external indicators on the flats or in contracts to identify them as LGBTQ+. The current proposal aims to designate 6 flats, comprising 42 rooms, for this scheme. However, if the demand exceeds this, there is potential to expand this further.
