Women's Lounges at WHOI

The Women’s Committee is happy to announce the renovation of two Women’s Lounges. Equipped with a couch, microwave, sink and small fridge, the lounges provide private, secure spaces to pump, nurse, or rest. The lounges are located on the Quissett Campus in Clark 325 and on the Village Campus through the 2nd floor Ladies washroom in the Redfield building. They can be reserved with an online scheduler (, or are otherwise available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priority should always be given to breastfeeding, pumping, or expectant mothers. Please contact the Women’s Committee ( with any questions or feedback.

Gender-Neutral Bathrooms at WHOI

Single-use bathrooms, which are equipped with locks, will now be identified with an “All-Gender” sign to denote the restroom as being gender-neutral and therefore available for anyone’s use. Multi-use bathrooms, which do not lock and instead have lockable stalls, will continue to be identified with “Women” or “Men” restroom signage. A new sign will be mounted outside of these restrooms stating that all are welcome to use the facilities that correspond with their gender identity and the sign will include a map showing where the closest “All-Gender” restroom is located.
