- All Gender Restrooms
The University of Alaska strives to create and sustain inclusive, supportive, safe, and nondiscriminatory communities. One aspect of creating a supportive environment is providing safe, accessible, and convenient restroom and locker room facilities. Students, staff, faculty, and campus guests are welcome to use the restroom and locker room facilities that correspond to their sex or gender identity, or utilize restrooms that are designated all gender.
