Oberlin College has developed a policy requiring that all residence halls have a designated number of “E-system” (all-gender) washrooms that is proportionate to the number of washrooms in the building. Every year, students then vote on how to designate the rest of the washrooms. Read the policy here.

McGill University has a student committee that works to advocate for ‘barrier-free’ washrooms, identifying ‘barrier-free’ as referring to ‘a facility that is wheelchair accessible, single occupancy and fulfills a need instead of a gender designation’. Their student union designed a single-occupancy washroom that read ‘toilette’ on the door, instead of typical ‘male’ and ‘female’ symbols” (Free to Pee @ GBC).

The University of Toronto’s campus map includes a list of single-user washrooms across their campus.

The University of Victoria‘s Pride group has a Gender Inclusive Washroom Initiative.

Western University has stated a commitment to “making gender-neutral washrooms accessible to the individuals that need them” here.

The University of Waterloo‘s GLOW Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity has mapped their campus’s gender-neutral washrooms.
