LGBTQ Life at JHU
Safe and Accessible Restrooms Assessment
We are looking for volunteers for our project assessing the current safety and accessibility of restrooms on the Homewood campus. Many campus users take restrooms at Hopkins for granted, but for many people restrooms can be a symbol of their exclusion on campus. We hope to address the needs of a variety of campus users including transgender and gender-variant students, women, people with physical disabilities and parents of young children. We then plan to provide resources and signage to help people locate gender-neutral, wheel-chair accessible, and family-friendly facilities, as well as to document any existing gender imbalances between men's and women's facilities that might exist on campus as a legacy of its history as a men's institution until 1970.
