All gender bathrooms now at UTS
- Recognising that all students, staff and visitors should feel safe and welcome on campus, the first all gender bathrooms have been established at UTS
- All gender bathrooms can now be found in 10 campus buildings, including the Tower
UTS has a diverse community of students, staff and visitors to our campus. It’s important to us that all individuals feel welcome and safe on our campus, and have access to appropriate facilities.
We have taken a step to improve the on-campus experience for people who prefer not to use single- gender bathrooms, with the establishment of all gender bathrooms in 10 of our buildings.
Why offer all gender bathrooms?
Some people within our community don’t identify with traditional binary genders (male and female). Others don’t feel comfortable using a bathroom designated by gender, sometimes because they’ve had a negative experience using a single-gender bathroom due to their appearance or gender identity.
All gender bathrooms provide a space that can be used comfortably by everyone.
How can I tell if a bathroom is all gender?
While unisex toilets are marked with male and female symbols, all gender bathrooms include an additional symbol that recognises gender diversity. At UTS, the signs are also clearly marked with the words 'All Gender'.
You will now find bathrooms with this sign in these UTS buildings:
- Building 1 (The Tower)
- Building 3 (Bon Marche)
- Building 4 (Science)
- Building 5, Blocks A, B and C
- Building 6 (DAB)
- Building 7 (Vicki Sara Building)
- Building 8 (Dr Chau Chak Wing Building)
- Building 10
- Building 11 (FEIT)
The first all gender bathrooms at UTS are bathrooms that have previously been designated as unisex accessible bathrooms, as these are the most appropriate existing facilities. This means that all existing accessible bathrooms will remain fully accessible and can be used by people of all genders. The university is exploring opportunities to establish more all gender bathrooms across campus in the future, including, potentially, within new buildings.
