Unisex Restroom Guide

What is this for?

The Unisex Restroom Guide provides the locations of unisex restrooms on the UMKC campus. Its purpose is to allow for all UMKC students, faculty, staff, and visitors to maintain their right to use restrooms in a safe and dignified manner regardless of their gender identity or presentation.

Why unisex restrooms?

For many people who identify as transgender (a term also including transgender, transsexual, crossdresser, gender bender, or anyone who doesn’t fall entirely in the “traditional” gender binary), the use of gender-specific restrooms can sometimes be accompanied by judgment, forced removal, and feelings of vulnerability.

Gender-neutral, unisex restrooms provide facilities that can be inclusive to all individuals, regardless of their gender identity or presentation. The presence of single-occupancy and unisex restrooms may be of importance to those who are currently discovering their own gender identity, those with disabilities and individuals with body-image issues.
