Dal provides free menstrual products in washrooms


Dalhousie University has announced that it will supply free menstrual pads and tampons in its campus washrooms in order to improve student access to menstruation products. Starting this fall, menstruation products will be installed in 106 washrooms, including men’s, women’s, and gender-neutral washrooms across Dal’s four campuses. The university will display signs below the washroom’s gender symbols to indicate which washrooms contain the products. While this is a pilot project, Dal Assistant VP, Human Resources Chris Hattie said that the university expects it will become a long-term initiative. He added that Dal is also looking into developing an interactive map to help students find the available products on campus.
