RALEIGH, N.C.–A state Senate bill filed Tuesday would prohibit UNC-Chapel Hill students from sharing campus apartments with the opposite sex, the Charlotte Observer reports.
Last year, the school’s Board of Trustees voted to allow students to live in suites or apartments with students of the opposite sex. Students said the move was necessary to give gay and transgender students comfortable living arrangements. Students of the opposite sex share common areas, but not bedrooms.
According to the report, Senate Bill 658 says students of the opposite sex cannot be assigned the same suite, apartment or dorm room unless they are siblings or are legally married.
