Gender neutral washrooms are those which can be used by anyone, regardless of gender. On the U of A campus, gender neutral washrooms are single-person washrooms, often barrier-free.
The GSA Vice-President Student Services Alireza Talaei is involved in discussions regarding gender neutral washrooms on campus with representatives from the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services, The Landing, the SU, Facilities & Operations, and the University Architect.
The committee is currently collecting a list of areas on campus where gender neutral washrooms are needed, and the University Architect has asked if the GSA can bring a list of places on campus where graduate students feel gender neutral washrooms are needed. Spaces identified by graduate students will be passed onto the committee, however the GSA cannot guarantee that all identified spaces will receive a gender neutral washroom.
