Room for Everyone

Having access to a secure washroom is a basic right for all people and having all gender washrooms available is an important part of making our campus safe, accessible, and welcoming for all of the Lakehead community. These washrooms are safe spaces where anyone, regardless of gender identity or presentation, can use the toilet, wash their hands and check the mirror.

Signage will be placed near all gender washrooms indicating that these spaces are inclusive and that Lakehead respects everyone's right to choose the washroom that is appropriate for them.
