All Gender Restrooms

The fourth floor of Smith houses PSU's first multi-stall all gender restroom. Opening in the winter of 2013, just outside of the Queer Resource Center, the restroom was created to add accessible, inclusive, and safe restroom options for the campus community. In th esummer of 2015, PSU developed and implemented an all gender restroom policy creating more all gender restrooms options across campus including several multi-stall options. 

Hydration Stations

Help PSU “Take Back the Tap” by refilling your reusable water bottle at one of more than 20 filtered water stations on campus (look for one in the Smith lobby). Initiated by a student campaign, these refilling stations are helping to reduce plastic waste from disposable water bottles.

Composting Station – Viking Food Court

PSU’s commitment to diverting food waste from landfills is exemplified through this creative recycling and compost station.
