Gender Neutral Restrooms on UC's Campus: There are many single user restrooms throughout campus, some are gendered and some are non-gendered or gender neutral. UC's Department of Planning, Designing, and Construction is committed to meeting the diverse needs of UC's students and has created a policy that requires any new building at UC to have at least one gender neutral restroom.  They also plan to change the signage on all single-user restrooms to make them gender neutral by fall 2010. Some of these restrooms can be a bit tricky to find, so check out the list of them all below.
