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 Derek Booth, the Residence Manager at 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.

Students can self-declare their gender on the residence application with no identification required.

McMaster Hall – All Gender

With private and semi-private washrooms, residents of McMaster Hall have the option not having to share a bathroom with others on their floor or wing. Residents who have a semi-private washroom share a bathroom with their neighbour only. Residents who share a washroom may share the washroom with someone of any gender. Most shared washrooms have one stalled toilet and one stalled shower.
