New Student Orientation Overnight Exemption

In an effort to make the New Student Orientation inclusive and welcoming for our newest transgender and gender diverse Cougars, the Orientation Team provides an overnight exemption.

The exemption states that if a student's gender identity does not align with the sex indicated on their UH application then the student can request to be housed according to their gender identity. All students interested in requesting an exemption must email orientation@uh.edu with a subject line containing their government name (for matching purposes), ID number, and OVERNIGHT EXEMPTION.
