Darrach Hall

Welcome to Darrach Hall!

Gender Inclusivity

We at Brandon University Residence strive to affirm all genders while remaining transparent about what we can offer with our current infrastructure. We recognize that gender is a galaxy, and that the language we use to define gender may have different meanings to different people. Students are encouraged to speak to the Derek Booth, the Residence Manager at boothd@brandonu.ca to address any concerns or questions regarding gender inclusion in residence. Part of his role at Brandon University is to ensure a safe environment for all students living in residence.

Darrach Hall – Male Inclusive

Darrach Hall –Men Inclusive

With its communal washroom spaces, Darrach Hall was as a single-gendered hall for men. In our mission to provide an affirming environment for all students, Darrach Hall is now inclusive of the following genders:

  • Cisgender Men
  • Trans Men
  • Non-Binary
  • Two Spirit

The communal washroom spaces have stalled toilets and urinal with no stalls. The showers have dividing walls and curtain, but have no stalls. There is one washroom per floor, with the exception of the basement. Due to the communal nature of this building, you may be seen walking to and from the washroom. Students are privacy within the shower by a curtain.

There are no accessible showers in these communal washrooms.
