Gender Neutral Toilets

We are supportive of Bristol SU and NUS campaigns to install more gender neutral toilets (GNTs) across our Estate and as such have adopted the NUS definition of GNTs as ‘toilets and/or bathroom facilities which do not have gendered signage and which do not require the person using them to define into a gender.’
