Segregated college housing involves colleges and universities creating dorms that are segregated by race, religion or national origin. It does not involve single-sex living units, because colleges have traditionally separated residents based on gender. The historic rationale for such units was to establish "safe spaces" for a particular set of students so that they can bond outside of the presence of non-group members. Although segregated housing is generally prohibited by the federal Fair Housing Act and local civil rights acts, some colleges have tried to claim that these units are actually special-interest living units for students of any background that happen to share an interest in Black Studies, Latino culture, Native American studies, or some other academic pursuit.

Stanford University offers theme and program houses,[1] including Chicanx/Latinx Focus, Native American Focus, Asian American Focus and Black Culture Focus.[2] Stanford's Ujamaa (Black Culture Focus) house official description includes:

People from all backgrounds, experiences, and interests make Ujamaa their home. While a great deal of the educational programming that occurs in the dorm centers around issues impacting Black Culture and Black communities, the dorm is in no way centered exclusively on the experience of black students.[3]

The California State University Los Angeles proposed to establish "Halisi Scholars Black Living Learning Community" an all-black dorms, which has led to controversy.[4]
