Trans Guide @ UIS: Facilities

Safe restroom use is important to the University of Illinois Springfield and to the UIS LGBTQA Resource Office. Below we have listed the locations of the seven single use lockable restrooms on campus that are signed as gender-neutral. The new Student Center will have one on each floor. We hope to improve the amount and visibility of these restrooms in the future.

Look for this sign at UIS:
