Gender Neutral Toilets
The 2011-12 Committee established a set of gender neutral toilets in the SU and through the great work of others we now have them in The Diamond too!

Gender neutral toilets are quite simply toilets available to people of all gender identities, any student may use these!
So Why Do We Need That?
Gender isn’t as black and white as male and female. Many Trans and/or Non-Binary people face a lot of anxiety about using toilets and what some students may take for granted, can be a very stressful experience.
