Campus and Community

By Elizabeth Furey

Memorial has added three gender-inclusive washrooms on the St. John’s campus, with work underway for more in the fall.

One gender-inclusive washroom has been added on level 2 of the Engineering and Applied Science building, and two more have been added to level 2 of the Arts and Administration building.

The Arts building washrooms are fully accessible and one has a baby changing table, as well.

Work is currently taking place on two gender-inclusive washrooms on level 2 of the Main Dining Hall in R. Gushue Hall, and one gender-inclusive washroom will be added on level 3 of the Engineering and Applied Science building.

In addition, a full gender-inclusive washroom with six stalls and a common hand washing location on level 3 of the QEII Library is currently in the works, and one gender-inclusive washroom will be included on each occupied floor plate in the new Core Science Facility for a total of 14 throughout the building.

The locations currently in progress are expected to open this fall. They will be adding to the existing locations throughout campus.
