The WRRC understands that every student has a variety of needs based on their lived experience. In an effort to provide more holistic support we have listed a number of additional resources below that we hope will be of use to members of the UC Davis community. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions, concerns, or would like to speak with someone about further support options in person.
Accessibility Resources Program
The aim of this resource is to make college life more accessible for chronically-ill and/or disabled students. Students request items that will help them navigate life in and outside of school, and we purchase them! Students of all years and genders may apply.
Purchases are currently limited to up to $250 at a time. Examples of some of the items we can purchase: mobility aids, medical bracelets, accessible cooking utensils, service animal supplies, orthopedics, compression socks, respiratory masks, and more!
Recipients are chosen on a quarterly basis; the Fall Quarter application deadline is November 30th at 11:59pm. For the Fall 2018 application, click here.
All Gender Bathrooms
Some people often feel uncomfortable when using segregated restrooms. Women/men gender-segregated bathrooms are not accessible spaces that everyone can use. Many people are subject to harassment, intimidation, legal charges, and violence on an every day basis. Transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, and/or gender non-conforming people are particularly affected by bathroom segregation because of the visible gender differences that may not correlate with cultural gender norms. Even in cities, towns, and college campuses that are generally considered “liberal” places where it is “easier” to be gender non-conforming, many people are still harassed in both women’s and men’s rooms.
Many non-transgender and gender conforming people also experience difficulty and inconvenience in gender-segregated bathrooms. Parents with differently-gendered children are not able to accompany them in gender-segregated bathrooms (a mother with her son or a father with his daughter). Disabled people with differently gendered attendants or family members are not able to bring them into gender-specific, multi-stall bathrooms.
Gender inclusive bathrooms are typically single-stall, lockable bathrooms available to people of all genders and sexes. Gender inclusive bathrooms provide a safe, private facility for transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people, families with children, and people with disabilities who may need assistance. Single-stall restrooms also more easily meet the accessibility regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
