Guide to Single-Stall Washrooms
In spring 2008, the Disability Resource Centre and Equity and Inclusion Office mapped the accessibility of campus washrooms. This assessment gathered information about washroom design and signage to note accessibility for persons with disabilities.
In creating a campus that is welcoming and accessible to all, we also assessed single-stall washrooms for unisex signage. Unisex single-stall washroom options are important for community members who may be transgender or gender-variant (people who do not identify in the gender binary categories of woman or man). Our offices are working with AVP Operations to ensure current and future washroom facilities on campus are accessible for people with disabilities and inclusive for all people on campus.
Consistent with universal design principles, and to create a campus free from discrimination and harassment, accessible and unisex signage for single-stall washrooms will help students, staff, and faculty feel safer and more welcome at UBC Okanagan.
The following table lists accessible and unisex single-stall washrooms at UBC Okanagan. Current unisex signage presumes a woman/man gender system excluding those who identify outside of this binary. Our offices will continue to support steps to improve campus washroom accessibility and signage that is inclusive of a range of genders.
