We have two PRIDE Residential Learning Communities affiliated with LGBTQ Campus Life that specializes in cultivating strong community, leadership, and knowledge of queer culture, especially on issues pertaining to sexual and gender diversity at Cal Poly and in San Luis Obispo. Each of these living options features opportunities for LGBTQ peer mentorship, gender-inclusive assignments, gender-inclusive restrooms, and virtual programmatic offerings through LGBTQ Campus Life and our partners.

In addition to our residential-learning communities, we recognize that many students across our housing system would be more comfortable living with other members of the LGBTQ+ community and/or in housing options inclusive of all genders, gender identities, and expressions (not gendered into male and female spaces). These clusters are intentional communities throughout all our residential communities designed to meet this need and feature gender-inclusive assignments, gender-inclusive restrooms, and programmatic offerings through the Pride Center.
