    Stonewall Suites is the university residence hall that houses LGBT students.

    All-Women

    The school also provides female-only housing “available to any student who chooses to live in a women-only living environment.”

    The female-only housing is located in the Tonopah housing community, whose amenities include premium cable television, wireless internet and a game area.

    I wonder if I could get a room in the upscale female-only housing if I put on some lipstick and tell them I’m identifying as a woman this week?
