Beginning in Fall Term 2017, restroom configurations in all UHDS residence halls will include gender-inclusive restrooms as well as men’s and women’s restrooms.
OSU residence halls have a variety of restroom options. There are men's and women's restrooms as well as gender-inclusive restrooms in each hall (a minimum of two per building).
A gender inclusive restroom is a restroom that any person is welcome to use. Gender-inclusive restrooms do not use gender to designate their use.
In alignment with OSU's institutional values, UHDS strives to create programs and services that meet the needs of all of our residents. Most importantly, there are also a growing number of requests from students for restroom options not designated by gender. These expanded options serve the current needs of our residents and continue our effort to create supportive on-campus living environments.
Students living in suite-style rooms share a restroom with one (or two) roommates and two (or three) suitemates. There are no changes planned for suite-style restrooms.
Students must meet with their RDs to be put on a waitlist for a room change. While we do not guarantee any room changes, we do grant hundreds of students' wait-list requests throughout the summer as well as during the academic year.
A student can see the restroom list online under the specific hall page. Anyone needing additional assistance can contact our office.
No resident is required or expected to ue any particular restroom. Residents may choose to use the restrooms that fit their needs, regardless of what floor or wing they reside in.
Most residential floors have at least two multi-stall restroom facilities. Restroom facilities feature a set of common sinks, private toilets with lockable doors and private shower stalls with lockable doors and shower curtains. Shower areas also include a drying/changing area that varies by building.
