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).

Values

Respect and affirmation of the student’s gender identity and/or expression.  

Prioritized attention to the student’s physical safety and emotional well being. 

Enhanced opportunities for LGBTQ+ student success  

Due to Covid-19 and subsequent occupancy limitations, TLC programs will remain in abeyance for 2020-2021.  These communities will be available to students who share similar interests but formal programming and learning outcomes will not be established until Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.
