Gender-Neutral Restrooms Map
The Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life has partnered with the Transgender Commission & Facilities Management to create Gender Neutral 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.
Map Navigation Instructions
The most up-to-date list of all gender-neutral restrooms on the Twin Cities campus can be found in the interactive campus map located at http://campusmaps.umn.edu To view restroom information, click on the "see more places and things" icon on the upper left (underneath the words 'Twin Cities'). Then, you can check on or off the box for gender neutral restrooms.
Gender-Neutral Restroom Update: August 25, 2016
As of today, the count of gender-neutral restrooms stands at approximately 290. The current distribution is broad and readily accessible to most members of the campus community. Facilities Management is working toward its target of 425-450 total gender-neutral restrooms, and expects to reach that goal by the end of the calendar year. For context, the OED-maintained map (which was the best publicly available information we had at the time) showed only about 120 gender-neutral facilities.
The remainder of the project involves getting signs in place and ensuring the University's space database is accurate for capture on the GIS enabled gender-neutral restroom layer on the interactive campus map. Staff are working hard on this, and progress is being made. I expect the pace will pick up again once the crush of beginning-of-the-year demands on FM and the Sign Shop slows down.
