All Gender Restrooms

All gender restrooms are one way that Seattle University works to respect the dignity of each person by providing inclusive and safe space for trans and gender nonconforming students, faculty, staff and community members.

 

What is an all gender restroom?

An all gender restroom, sometimes called a gender neutral restroom, or a single use restroom is a restroom that anyone of any gender can use. These restrooms can benefit many different people, including parents with differently gendered children, alter-abled people who may require the accompaniment of an attendant of a different gender, and trans and gender non-conforming people. At Seattle University, each of the all gender restrooms are single use. Single use, all gender restrooms are lockable rooms with a toilet and sink, for use by one individual at a time.

Future of all gender restrooms at Seattle University:

All new construction at Seattle University incorporates the inclusion of all gender restrooms, in addition to restrooms designated for male and female users. As funds and zoning permits, more existing restrooms will be converted to all gender restrooms to increase availability and access.

 

The history of all gender restroom at Seattle University:

In 2012 the inter-divisional Committee to Improve Trans Inclusion (CITI) was mandated with continuing to research and implement changes to improve the University’s inclusion of trans and gender non-conforming students, faculty and staff. There are four areas in the initial work of CITI: facilities (including all gender restroom conversion and construction), forms that individuals at the University use to describe gender, administrative processes and data systems and education outreach to faculty, staff, and students regarding trans and gender non-conforming issues.

If you have any questions about all gender restrooms at Seattle University, please contact the co-chairs of CITI, Tammy Liddell at liddelt@seattleu.edu or Czarina Ramsay at ramsayc@seattleu.edu.
