Illinois State to offer LGBTQ residence floor


Illinois State University (ISU) will reserve at floor at a residence hall for LGBTQ students and allies.

ISU’s University Housing announced this week that there would be a Rainbow Floor at Watterson Towers, new for fall 2021.

Ed Campbell, assistant director of marketing for the housing department, said University Housing Services worked with the School of Communication & African American Studies, ISU Pride, Diversity Advocacy, and the School of Philosophy & Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies to develop the themed-living learning community (TLLC).

The community will be on the third floor of Watterson D House.

“Students living on the floor will benefit from social support and professional development opportunities by working closely with the PRIDE student organization, Multicultural Center, and Bloomington-Normal community,” Campbell said.

Other public and private colleges in Illinois offer LGBTQ residence floors, with Eastern Illinois University announcing their own this past February.
