The University of North Carolina's Board of Governors voted last Friday to place a ban on gender-inclusive housing at all 17 UNC campuses, mandating that students of different legal sexes cannot live together in any dorm room, suite or apartment of any UNC system campus unless they are siblings or legally married. The vote was passed unanimously, putting an end to plans of installing gender-inclusive housing for the upcoming 2013-14 school year.

There has been a backlash against this decision, as some fear it will create a hostile environment for gay or transgender students. Others are happy as they view the move as an attempt to prevent students from engaging in sexual activity in a state with one of the highest teen pregnancy rates.
