Bathrooms on our Campuses

OSU-N & COTC’s non-discrimination policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression, sex, sexual orientation, and many other identities. This means you have the right to use the campus bathroom that feels right to you.  However, should you feel unsafe at any time, know that you can call Newark campus security: 740-366-9237 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
