Gender Inclusive Bathrooms on Campus
At the University of Louisville, all are welcome. We believe every person is born with dignity and humanity, and we practice that in one way by creating welcoming and inclusive spaces. Having building space with bathroom facilities that are open to people of any gender, or "gender neutral," is an important way university offices can show their full welcome and inclusion.
Gender Neutral/ Family restroom- Typically, these bathrooms are single-stall and have a door that can be locked. Some may include urinals, changing tables, and even a shower stall.
Gender Inclusive Restroom Policy for the University- In 2009, former Vice President for Business Affairs Larry Owsley responded to LGBT student inquiries by agreeing that all new construction at the university would include at least one gender-inclusive, family-friendly restroom that would meet multiple needs. This has become the standard for university buildings, and new structures like the new Student Recreation Center on Belknap and research buildings on the Health Sciences Center have all complied.

Please note, we are constantly at work updating our database of gender neutral bathrooms. If you know of a gender neutral bathroom not included in the listing, or see incorrect or missing information, please contact the LGBT Center directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
