New Policy Will Create More Gender-Inclusive Restrooms on Campus

UW–Madison will create more gender-inclusive restrooms under a newly adopted policy. Gender-inclusive restrooms are defined as single-stall, locking restrooms. The Gender Inclusive Restroom Facilities Policy requires a minimum number of such facilities to be provided in new and renovated buildings. The policy also states that students, faculty, staff, visitors and guests may use the restroom, locker room or changing facility in which they feel safest and most comfortable. Currently the university has approximately 145 single-stall, locking restrooms that can be located using an online campus map. The university expects to add additional facilities over the next several years. The policy was developed by the Gender Inclusive Restroom Facilities Task Force, a shared governance group formed in 2017.
