Trans people have the right, by law, to use facilities appropriate to their gender identity or expression; they do not have to use gender-neutral facilities. As per USW Trans Equality Policy, this includes those who identify as non-binary, agender, gender fluid or any other self-identified term.
However, should you choose to, there are a limited number of gender-neutral facilities available at USW and the locations of these are listed below. This is currently being reviewed with the intention of making more facilities available in the near future. Developments will be posted on the Hub and UniLife.
