Texas Christian University announced Monday it will not provide on campus housing for gay students this fall as previously planned.

TCU Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr. said in a statement that
TCU "will maintain its long-standing commitment to the
inclusiveness of all people."

The DiversCity Q community was to open this fall in some campus
apartments for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender students - as
well as their heterosexual classmates who support them.

Eight students had signed up so far.

TCU, a private university with about 7,500 undergraduate
students, is associated with the Christian Church (Disciples of
Christ), a community embracing both faith and reason, according to
the school's Web site.
