The goal of the Real Estate Division is to create an integrated real estate management and operating organization. To this end, we are transforming the way we approach the development and management of Berkeley’s on-campus and off-campus facilities, working to become a highly dynamic planning, management, development, and construction organization focused on customer service, operating efficiencies, and new revenue generation. Our goal is to create a structure that positions Berkeley to better respond to the rapidly changing challenges and opportunities that we confront.

Gender-Inclusive Restrooms at Evans Hall

The campus's first project to convert existing multi-stall, gender-specific restrooms to a multi-stall gender-inclusive restroom is now complete and the restrooms, located on the first floor of Evans Hall, opened last week.  Formerly separate men's and women's restrooms, the facility now includes eight (8) individual fully-enclosed stalls, one of which is ADA accessible.  The stall doors are designed to ensure privacy and each stall has a fire alarm with a horn strobe and its own venting.  A shared sink in the middle of the room has new water-efficient fixtures. Energy-efficient LED lighting is controlled by a motion sensor and new tiles and mirrors make the space much brighter than it was before.

Most importantly, the restrooms are open to everyone, helping to create an overall inclusive campus environment for all members of our community.  While gender-inclusive restrooms are now part of campus standards for restrooms and included in any new campus buildings, converting existing multi-stall restrooms like these on the first floor of Evans takes additional resources and so conversions will take place over time.
