Inclusive washrooms at UBC

Share your experiences about inclusive washrooms at UBC

UBC Infrastructure Development and the Equity & Inclusion Office are conducting a campus-wide consultation to define Inclusive Washrooms at UBC. The information gathered will help inform the development of new design guidelines for Inclusive Washrooms at UBC. These guidelines will provide clear instructions to designers and developers when creating and renovating washrooms and changing rooms on campus.

What is an inclusive washroom?

An inclusive washroom is a washroom that can be used safely, accessibly and comfortably at UBC. Inclusivity is not just about gender. It offers increased comfort, choice, safety and privacy by considering diverse needs such as space for wheelchairs, change tables and cultural practices.

What’s happening now?

In March, we launched a campus-wide survey to students, faculty, staff, and visitors to get a better understanding of user experiences, challenges, needs, and ideas across five key themes. We are particularly interested in understanding the vulnerable, invisible and lesser-known experiences of those who are transgender, gender diverse, Two-Spirit, Indigenous, have disabilities, diverse prayer practices and/or have experienced violence in these spaces.

We invite you to participate in this 15-30 minute survey and enter for a chance to win one of five $50 Visa gift cards! The survey has been extended to end on May 15, 2020.
