New Gender Inclusive Restrooms on Campus

November 25, 2019

The Gender Inclusive Restroom (GIRR) Task Force announces the installation of four new gender-inclusive restroom facilities on campus:

  • Harry Griffith Hall (HGH) – The Men’s Room on the east side of the 2nd floor has been converted to a Gender Inclusive restroom.  Modifications included the installation of a standard toilet partition at the urinal for privacy. Soon to be installed are menstrual product disposal boxes in each stall. Signage at the door has been changed to reflect the use of the restroom as All Gender per our campus signage standard.  This is the first multi-stall gender-inclusive restroom facility in the academic core of campus. 
  • Science C – Privacy deadbolts that indicate vacant/occupied have been installed at the entrance to each restroom on the 1st floor of Science C. While long term plans are to bring both restrooms into compliance with ADA accessibility guidelines, we have removed the toilet stall partitions and one of the two doors at the entrance vestibule to the former Women’s room to improve maneuverability in the restrooms in the interim.
  • Wildlife & Fisheries Building – Similarly, the former Men’s Room near the main entrance on the 1st floor of Wildlife & Fisheries have been converted to a single occupancy gender-inclusive restroom through the installation of an occupancy deadbolt.  Restroom signage has been changed to match our campus standard for All Gender restrooms.

The Task Force would like to recognize Facilities Services for implementing these changes.
