All-Gender Restrooms

Gender Netural Restroom Sign

All-gender restrooms benefit all people, including transgender and gender diverse individuals, people who require the assistance of a caregiver of a different gender, and parents with children of different genders.

The Pride Center understands the importance of having more all-gender restrooms on our campus. In Fall 2021, we created a proposal that outlines why additional all-gender restrooms are a necessity and provided specific recommendations for how SMC can make all-gender restrooms a reality as early as the start of the Fall 2022 semester on SMC's main campus.
