All Gender Restrooms on Campus
Some transgender individuals may feel discomfort, experience discrimination, or suffer harassment when forced to choose from gender binary (male- or female-specific) restrooms on campus. All gender restrooms allow for a safe and comfortable facility for individuals.
All gender restrooms are single use and therefore allow anyone to use them, regardless of their gender identity. In addition, gender neutral restrooms allow personal assistants to aid those who need help to use the restroom, even if they are not the same gender.
Eastern Illinois University provides a number of gender neutral restrooms throughout campus. These are indicated with a red star on the map below.
