Carnegie Mellon University

An all-gender, or gender-inclusive, restroom is a facility open to individuals of all gender identities and expressions. These restrooms can be single- or multi-stall. All-gender restrooms increase access and reduce the risk of discrimination and harassment for all community members and visitors, including: 

  • Transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and gender expansive people
  • People with limited mobility who want to use the nearest restroom
  • People who need a caregiver’s assistance
  • Caregivers with children

Carnegie Mellon University is a gender-diverse community. In accordance with the Statement of Assurance, individuals are invited to choose the restroom they find welcoming and safe.
