  West Virginia University has launched a housing program for students to room together on campus regardless of sex, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.

WVU's True Colors community also supports students who are transgender or gender non-conforming in choosing a roommate of any gender. The gender-neutral community isn't intended for romantic couples.

WVU Housing and Residence Life staff will collaborate with the university's LGBTQ Center to provide programs for residents to explore gender identity.

Students can choose to apply for the housing option.
