About

Lavender Living is designed as an intentional living community affirming the cultural experiences of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual, pansexual, non-identifying, questioning, etc.) residents as well as their allies.

The community is an additional option for students who desire gender-inclusive housing, as this living area will pair roommates regardless of sex or gender identity. This theme housing community is a perfect place to fully develop and discover identities and get connected with campus LGBTQ+ resources. Lavender Living provides an extended stay option allowing residents to remain in Chico during the traditional breaks (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Location:  Konkow
