Gender-Inclusive Restrooms at UVM

Many individuals benefit from accessible, gender-inclusive restrooms including those with disabilities and others who have caregivers or attendants of a different gender; people accompanying small children; and transgender, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming individuals who may be subject to harassment or violence when using gender-specific restrooms. Accordingly, the University supports the option of individuals to use the restroom that meets their individual needs or in which they feel safest.
