All Gender Washrooms

Everyone needs a washroom! All gender washrooms and inclusive signage are an important part of making our campus safe, accessible and welcoming.

The safety and comfort for trans and gender diverse people in gender segregated spaces is an ongoing issue. All gender washrooms are safe spaces where anyone, regardless of gender identity or presentation, can use the toilet, wash their hands and check the mirror. They decrease anxiety and fear for trans and gender diverse people while using the facilities as there is less chance of physical or verbal harassment or assault—a real and ongoing risk in gender segregated spaces.

Anti-Black Racism Campus Climate Review

Ryerson is embarking on a campus climate review of Anti-Black Racism (ABR). Nearly 10 years ago, an Anti-Racism Task Force released a report that gave insight to the campus’ climate. A few years later, the Black Liberation Collective – Ryerson, a student group, raised new concerns regarding the prevalence of Anti-Black Racism (ABR) on campus. Now in response, and as the 10th anniversary of that report approaches, Ryerson University is conducting a new Anti-Black Racism Campus Climate Review. Anyone from the Ryerson community who self-identifies as a Black person is welcome to participate in this review.
