The signage for 22 single stall restrooms and two family restrooms on campus will be updated early this fall.
To maximize safety and inclusivity on campus, the LGBTQIA+ Task Force, Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, and Facilities have been working together for more than a year on universal restroom signage.
The new signage will be supportive of UNO’s queer and trans spectrum community, people with disabilities, and families.
Two new signs have been developed:
- If the restroom has a changing table, the signage will have three symbols: (1) a baby to represent the changing station, (2) the accessibility symbol, which shows our campus supports accessibility beyond compliance, and (3) a toilet with no gender-specific indicators. The language will emphasize that any person or family can use the restroom regardless of gender identity or expression.
- If the restroom does not have a changing table, the baby symbol will be removed, but the other two symbols will remain. The language will emphasize that any person can use the restroom regardless of gender identity or expression.
