School and university restrooms, locker and shower rooms have specific ADA accessibility requirements that serve the needs of staff, students and campus visitors who are disabled as a result of injury, illness or age. Taking good care of them is good for the reputation of a sensitive community institution, and fosters positive public relations. Adherence to accessibility guidelines also helps schools comply with civil-rights law, which is enforceable by the Department of Justice. This article provides ADA accessibility guidelines that helps staff and students, and keeps schools in legal compliance. It also presents some recommendations for accessible school washrooms.
