Gender Inclusive Restrooms and Facilities

Brown supports all people in using the restroom and locker room that aligns with their gender identity. For anyone who would like to use a gender inclusive restroom, we have many on campus, and we are working to provide more in buildings that do not yet have them available.

Locating Gender Inclusive Restrooms

When Brown builds a new building or does a major building renovation, we have a standard practice of including or adding a gender-inclusive restroom. With renovations the updates will depend on the scope of the renovation, but we add one whenever possible. The Residence Hall restroom designations sometimes change so if you would like to make sure you live near a gender-inclusive restroom you can let the Office of Residential Life know when you register for housing.

The BrownU mobile app has a feature that shows a map of all-gender or gender affirming restrooms.

We are actively in process of working with facilities to identify areas that need gender-inclusive restrooms and we are adding them as quickly as we are able.

For an update about any particular area or building, please contact Caitlin O'Neill.
