Future campus buildings will come equipped with gender-neutral bathrooms to support and accommodate the University’s LGBT community.

The Law Learning Center, Science and Engineering Hall and the new building for the School of Public Health and Health Services will include gender-neutral bathrooms, University spokeswoman Michelle Sherrard said.

Sherrard added that the University “will seek to do so as a matter of practice in new buildings, whenever possible.”

President of Allied in Pride Nick Gumas lauded the University for creating “a more inclusive environment for all.”

“Having gender neutral bathrooms on campus adequately acknowledges and protects the needs of trans-gender students,” Gumas said in an email.
