For the last six months, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Wolfe Street building has undergone construction to update restrooms throughout the building. While some of the updates allow for more ecofriendly toilets, the more noticeable changes will be the style of restrooms.
In preparing to update the facilities, Dean MacKenzie and the student government received guidance from faculty and students in the LGBTQ working group to make the remodels more inclusive and supportive to those in the LGBTQ community. As a result, the Wolfe Street building will now offer five all-gender, single-occupancy, restrooms; ten all-gender, multiple-occupancy restrooms; twenty-three multiple-occupancy restrooms for women; and twenty-five multiple-occupancy for men.
The all-gender, single-occupancy restrooms have already opened and the remaining construction on some of the multiple-occupancy restrooms will be completed before the end of the month.
