All-Gender Restroom Map

The Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life has partnered with the Trans Action & Advisory Team and Facilities Management to create gender inclusive restrooms across the University of Minnesota, so people of all bodies and genders may have full access. The majority of these restrooms are single-stall & wheelchair accessible, removing barriers that previously existed because of gender, disability, or safety concerns.
