24-Hour Restroom Access

The gender-neutral restroom located just outside of the Mendocino Lounge at the CR Residence Halls is now open 24-hours/day, 7days a week, including weekends and holidays, to ensure students have restroom access after business hours.

Shower Access

The women's and men's showers located in the locker rooms in the Physical Education Building are available to all students Monday through Friday, from 7:00am to 7:00pm. The locker rooms and showers are not available on weekends or holidays. Free towels are available at the CR Food Pantry and can be laundered and returned by making arrangements with Food Pantry staff.


The locker rooms in the Physical Education Building are available to be used by students. Students will need to provide their own locks. Students do not need to notify anyone once they have selected a locker or lockers, simply place your lock on the locker. You will need to remove the contents of the locker at the end of the semester so custodians can clean the insides of all of the lockers.  Locks are available at the CR Food Pantry.


Students who have found themselves without access to laundry facilities can have clothing laundered at CR. The Food Pantry has mesh laundry bags for issue to students. Place the items you would like laundered in the bag and leave at the Food Pantry.  The bag and its contents will be washed, dried and returned to the Food Pantry the next business day.
