Many of our toilets on our campus are gender specific but gender-neutral toilets are available in some University buildings for employees that prefer to use these. Gender-neutral changing rooms are available in the Sports Centre. We appreciate that some trans people, including those who are non-binary prefer to use gender-neutral facilities.  

Gender-neutral toilets can be found in the following places:

  • Student Central
  • The Library (Schwann Building, Level 5)
  • Joseph Priestley (Ground Floor, 1st Floor and 2nd Floor)
  • Human Resources (Level 6, Schwann Building)
  • Charles Sykes Building (1st Floor)

* Plans are in place for gender-neutral toilets in Sovereign House which is currently being built (near the new Barbara Hepworth building – formerly the Bath House for Broadbents).
