Equality considerations coupled with sensitivity to the needs of all users should underlie the provision of toilet facilities. A range of gendered and non-gendered facilities should be provided where possible to meet individual preferences and for cultural, religious or sensitive personal reasons.
The University recommends that the provision of some gender neutral facilities is considered in every new build and refurbishment. Ideally these should include single cubicle gender neutral toilets, with integrated washing facilities and floor to ceiling doors.
We recommend the provision of gender neutral toilets in addition to existing accessible toilets, and would not normally expect accessible toilets to be used by trans people, since they may be needed urgently by disabled people.
