COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri has been considering requests from student groups to begin offering coed living.

Several University of Missouri student groups, including the Residential Halls Association, have adopted resolutions calling for gender-neutral housing.

Frankie Minor, director of the University of Missouri's Residential Life Department, told The Columbia Daily Tribune ( ) that there are a few issues, like space, that the university needs to resolve before adopting gender-neutral housing.

Minor also says he hopes to develop a solution by next fall and is seeking advice from other universities.

Elsewhere in Missouri, Washington University in St. Louis and Northwest Missouri State both offer gender-neutral housing. Northwest Missouri began its gender-neutral housing program this fall after requests from transgendered students, but the program is open to all students.
