UC Berkeley Unveils Universal Locker Room

2/12/2019; 1 minutes

The opening of a 4,500-square-foot universal locker room at UC Berkeley's Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) is believed to be the first large-scale collegiate universal locker room in California and one of just a few in the nation. Any students or other RSF members needing more privacy, including those who are transgender, non-binary or have disabilities or body image struggles, will find a welcoming facility next door to the men's and women's locker rooms.
The $2.7 million locker room has its own entrance, 400 lockers, 16 individual changing rooms, seven private showers, five private toilets and four shared sinks. It also leads to Spieker Pool, which, in the past, some students avoided, since it was only accessible through the existing locker rooms.
