Public Health Issue

For transgender and gender non-conforming people using public bathrooms can be a source of stress and anxiety because of very real psychological and physical safety concerns. People whose appearance does not conform to what is commonly expected for men or women experience stares, questions, comments, verbal harassment, and physical violence when they try to use public bathrooms. Due to these possibilities, transgender and gender non-conforming people sometimes avoid using public bathrooms altogether, which has the potential for health complications, such as dehydration, urinary tract infections, kidney infections, and other kidney problems.

As part of our efforts to provide a safer and more inclusive campus, the GSC provides recommendations and consulting related to all-gender bathrooms.

All-Gender signs are available for the UIC campus. To begin the process to replace signage on a single stall gendered bathroom, fill out a standard service request through FM Web indicating the building and room number and that you’d like an All Gender sign. Location of the bathroom determines whether or not this will be a billable request. UIC Facilities Management

For off campus use, many options for All-Gender restroom signs are available from MyDoorSign.com
