Locker Rooms: PE 106
Individuals are free to use the locker/rest rooms to which they identity. Individuals can also arrange with Dr. Nyhus to privately use the women's faculty locker room on the second floor if they are uncomfortable with a shared locker room setting. Note that individual rest rooms are also the Science building. We have begun discussing a non-intrusive solution for the PE Building and hope to have something in place soon.
