Student Recreation Center & Locker room Facilities
Does Vanderbilt Student Recreation Center provide gender inclusive facilities (i.e. locker rooms)?
Currently (July 2013) the student recreation center only offers locker rooms that are designated men and women spaces. However as part of the student recreation center expansion their will be family locker rooms at end of 1st floor to your right. This “family locker room” is an individual private locker room for folks with children, folks who do not identify with using a men or women’s specific locker room, and folks who need special accommodations. These locker rooms should be open and available beginning January 2nd, 2014.
