Gender Inclusive Housing

Email women@ramapo.edu or reslife@ramapo.edu for more information

Ramapo College seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not limited by the traditional gender binary. Gender Inclusive Housing allows for same-gender, opposite-gender or other-gender identities to live together regardless of biological sex. This provides a living/learning environment where residents can learn about and explore gender identity and expression in a supportive and safe environment.

Name Changes on Campus

Ramapo College unfortunately does not offer “preferred” or “used” names in our student information systems, Banner or Canvas, however we are currently in the process of updating those systems. Banner provides information for class rosters, billing, identification cards, residence life housing assignments, degrees, transcripts, email/Gmail, Canvas, and Archway, among other areas on campus.

A Name Committee comprised of professional staff, faculty, and students from various areas on campus was created to address name change issues at the college. For more information about this committee, contact Melissa Van der Wall mvanderw@ramapo.edu.
