UManitoba launches pilot program to put free menstrual products in campus washrooms


The University of Manitoba and the Univeristy of Manitoba Students’ Union have launched a pilot project to provide free menstrual products in campus washrooms. The products will be available in eight bathrooms at the Fort Garry campus and one bathroom each at the Bannatyne and William Norrie campuses. “This pilot program and the work of the UM Food Bank are key to ensuring that students have access to personal hygiene products and non-perishable food during these challenging times,” said UManitoba Vice-Provost (Students) Laurie Schnarr. “We want students to thrive at the University of Manitoba and these initiatives are examples of our commitment to addressing barriers to student success.”
