The University of Toledo has designated certain restrooms on campus as gender neutral and for family use as part of its commitment to diversity.
“Gender-neutral restrooms are not unusual and can now be found everywhere in shopping venues, churches and in many new construction projects,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, associate vice president for equity, diversity and community engagement. “The President’s Council on Diversity has always supported programs or proposals that create an inclusive, welcoming campus environment, and this not only does that but also assists UT in keeping up with the times.”
There are 18 gender-neutral/family restrooms located in the Student Union, Student Recreation Center, Gillham Hall, University Hall and other buildings across campus. For a full listing and map, visit utoledo.edu/campus/virtualtour.
“We are excited that our University is committed to providing safe, private and accessible spaces for all people, particularly in regards to gender identity or expression, disability, and family needs,” said Fatima Pervaiz, program coordinator in the Office of Multicultural Student Services.
All restrooms comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act and are marked as gender-neutral/family restrooms.
