All-Gender Restrooms

 

An all-gender restroom, or gender neutral restroom, is a restroom that anyone of any gender or non-gender can use. These restrooms can benefit many different people including families, differently abled persons, and transgender people. Historically, restrooms have been a place for harassment, discrimination, and threats of injury and arrest towards transgender people. All-gender restrooms provide an opportunity for our community members to enter a room without being questioned or interrogated. Remember to announce where all-gender restrooms are during events.

Buildings with All Gender Restrooms

Currently, all of Bates all-gender restrooms are single stall, locking restrooms. Signage for these restrooms do not always indicate that they are single stall, or all-gender restrooms. In addition, not all all-gender restrooms are accessible. Please note that residence halls and houses are currently only accessible to current Bates students.
