The Libraries is proud to support the student group We Bleed Red and the university’s Menstrual Equity Initiative by providing free menstrual products in all public single-occupancy and women’s restrooms in the Hill Library. Dispensers are now installed in 21 restrooms in Hill.

The university announced its Menstrual Equity Initiative, a one-year pilot project, in January of this year with the objective of providing free menstrual products to reduce the burden on students facing housing and food insecurities and lack of access to personal health products—something for which We Bleed Red, a student-run organization formed in 2017, had been leading campus advocacy.
