The College does not currently have a policy about public restrooms. TCC must comply with federal regulations regarding transgender students using the bathroom that matches their gender identity. Those federal regulations have changed on a very consistent basis over the past four years. Our posture working with Campus Police is to do the right thing, which we have interpreted as allowing anyone to use whichever restroom that best matches their identity and comfort level. TCC is not allowed to have a policy that conflicts with the federal regulations. The piece in our policy that covers this topic is the umbrella of Title IX. TCC cannot and does not require anyone to use a one stall/family restroom. That would be against their constitutional rights.
Below is a list of TCC campus restrooms that are inclusive if you prefer to use them:
Northeast: The Academic Building has an accessibility/family restroom located on the first floor, near the campus police office.
Southeast: There are two accessibility/family restrooms located in Building 2, one on the first floor (SEC 2222-C); one on the second floor (SEC 2137-C), at the east end of Bldg. 2. There is also an accessibility/family restroom in Building 9, Student Union, on the first floor (SEC 9100-D) near the entrance to the Chat Room.
Metro: Metro Campus has single stall restrooms in the following locations:
Main Academic Building:
- ACA-MC-143A (first floor, south end)
