Single-Use, Gender-Inclusive Restrooms

The Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity and our campus partners work to provide more single-use, gender-inclusive restrooms on the KU campus. Our goal is to offer safe and comfortable places for members of the campus community to use the restroom. We are particularly concerned in offering these restrooms to those individuals who are transgender, gender nonconforming, queer, those with disabilities who have an attendant of a different sex/gender, and parents with young children of another sex/gender.

What is a gender-inclusive restroom?

A restroom that is not gender-specific (e.g. Men OR Women), rather it open to all genders (i.e. a person of any gender can use).

What is a single-use, gender-inclusive restroom?

Likely similar to the restroom you have in your house, apartment, etc. It is a small lockable room with a toilet and sink, for use by one individual at a time, regardless of gender.
