Comments (primary residence)

"6 out of 29 of our residents openly identify as LGBTQ students. There haven't been any serious issues that I know of in the year that I've lived here. In fact, one of the students that I know who was not as accepting as the rest of the house has even ended up becoming friends with people in the LGBTQ community."

"Spanish house is welcoming to everyone."

"There are several LGBTQ residents in Spanish House and they seem to feel safe here. Spanish House is a good place to live. "

"There are several LGBTQ members in the living group, and they have always been very welcome and accepted. There used to be occasional joking use of hurtful language, but some house members have taken steps in recent years to further educate the others, and the use of such language has greatly decreased. The house is a warm and welcoming environment, and any issue is promptly addressed by the community to assure that we stay that way. "

"We have 6 openly LGBTQ students (out of 29 residents) in Spanish house. To me it seems like people are accepting and tolerant. Even the few who are strongly religious have no problem hanging out with and talking to LGBTQ students."
