NUSU and University policy allow you to use the bathroom of the gender you present as across campus, but we know in practice, things aren’t always so simple. Safe, gender-neutral toilets are open all day and night in the Union building, on Levels 1, -1, and in Venue. Bins for sanitary products are also available in the toilets of all genders.
When joining clubs in the Athletic Union, keep an eye out for our ‘Earn Your Stripes’ Inclusivity badges. Clubs that display this badge have actively worked to include underrepresented members, participated in positive campaigns, and appointed a welfare officer on the committee.
Thanks to our lively LGBT+ Society and our dedicated NUSU Officers, there’s always something interesting going on for LGBT+ students. Keep your eyes peeled across campus for everything from queer history talks to Trans and non-binary clothing exchanges!
If you encounter an issue related to your sexuality or gender in your academic life, the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion team exists to tackle discrimination and create an inclusive culture throughout all faculties of the University.
