All-Gender Restrooms

Thanks to a student-led campaign in Spring 2015, supported by SU Planned Piratehood, SU Fed Up, the Office of Diversity Education, and the Diversity Enrichment Committee, Southwestern University is now home to gender-inclusive restrooms. Gender-inclusive restrooms, often called gender-neural restrooms, provide essential spaces for our trans and non-binary students, as restrooms are often where they face a higher chance of assault and because being required to use a bathroom with a different designated gender than their own can cause dysphoria. A map of the All Gender Restrooms is included below.

 

The All-Gender Restrooms, as marked in the map, are listed below, according to numbering on the map.

*Some All-Gender Restrooms have multiple stalls and thus have a privacy lock for when they are in use as a gender inclusive restroom.

The All-Gender Restrooms are marked, as needed, with the following placards and symbols. 

placardTo support trans and non-binary people on campus, the ODE suggests learning the locations of the All-Gender Restrooms, so you may direct people to these restrooms. The ODE also suggests familiarizing yourself with gender-neutral pronouns, some of which are below:
