(UNIVERSITY HERALD) — A female-to-male transgender student has filed a sex discrimination complaint against a Christian University in Oregon, claiming the school refused to let him live in men's dormitories, Campus Reform reported.
Officials at George Fox University said that allowing second-year student Jayce to live in on-campus housing would interfere with the school's efforts to "be a Christ-centered community."
School officials said its Christian theology makes it necessary for their residential facilities to be single gender.

"Our residential facilities are single gender because of our theological commitments," university officials said in a statement. "The student's request to switch from female-only on-campus housing to male-only on-campus housing is one that many institutions would struggle with."
