University of Hawaii Opens All-gender Restrooms

HONOLULU ― The University of Hawaii has opened nine more all-gender restrooms on its Manoa campus.

Each all-gender bathroom is a lockable, single-stall room similar to the “family restrooms” found in malls and airports.

Camaron Miyamoto who leads an LGBTQ center at UH says all-gender restrooms can be essential for students who don’t feel comfortable in sex-segregated facilities.

The university said in a press release Wednesday that nearly three-quarters of the restrooms in its residence halls are all-gender. The Hilo campus has 20 all-gender bathrooms, and UH West Oahu has one and plans to add two more.

UH Hilo Chancellor Don Straney says no one should ever feel uncomfortable using the school’s restrooms.
