Potty Parity


On 18.03.2024, the toilets for men and women will be swapped in some sections of the building for a trial period of 6 months. In doing so, we want to move closer to potty parity: a fairer distribution of toilets for everyone so that waiting times in front them are evenly distributed.


To achieve this, your cooperation is essential! Please answer the survey on our information page (Potty Parity) both now and after the test phase. You will find further information material, such as which toilets are swapped following the link and in the attached material.

Best regards,
Your Physics Equal Opportunities Team
