Are there all-gender washrooms in residence?

We have a place for you. We want two-spirit, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming students to feel welcome and safe living in our residences. All-gender washrooms are spaces that individuals can access and use, regardless of their gender identity. Unlike gender-specific washrooms which are designated as being for either women or men, all-gender washrooms are available for use by anyone. 

Each first-year residence building has at least one all-gender washroom in our central complex area to use when studying and hanging out with friends, dining at an eatery or visiting a front desk.  If you are living in Claudette Millar Hall, each floor has all-gender washrooms. Our other first-year residence communities (dorm-style and suite-style) are organized by gender, where students who identify as female live together, and students who identify as male live together.  Washrooms in Ron Edyt Village and Village 1 are designated as being for either women or men. In suite-style residences (UWP, CLV and MKV), room assignments are based on gender and the washrooms are shared by the roommates within the suite. If you wish to not disclose your gender, we will never ask you to.   

If you would like to speak with someone before completing the First-Year Guarantee Residence Application, please email us at and we will connect you with our Residence Life team who are ready to support you and will find you the space in residence that works best for you. 

Understanding your REV assignment

When getting placed in REV you may have questions about your assignment. There are 4 quads in REV: North, South, East and West. Each quad has 5 levels, indicated by: A, B, C, D or E.  The first letter of your assignment will indicate your quad and the second letter will indicate your floor. For example if you are placed in REV EA you have been placed in the East Quad on the A floor.

Cleaning and housekeeping

All residents are responsible for the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance of their room. A member of our cleaning services staff will clean the washrooms and common areas daily. Although Housing staff clean washrooms daily, residents are responsible for cleaning up after themselves.

All maintenance and repair requests should be reported to the REV maintenance team right away.
