Transgender George Fox student told he can’t live in male dorms

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Apr 6, 2014

Oregon (KTNV) -- An Oregon college student is now without a dorm room due to his gender.

Jace identifies as a transgender and is currently undergoing a female-to-male transition.

Jace wants to live on-campus at George Fox University with male friends, but the school has denied that request.

Now, some students are furious.

The school said it's founded on Christian values, and this decision is simply a reflection of those principles.

Jace filed legal paperwork in hopes of living in the male dorm next year.
