Practice Shared Washroom Etiquette

Please practice proper washroom etiquette, as the washrooms are a common space to be shared with others. This includes keeping the area clean by wiping down areas after use, flushing only toilet paper down the toilets, and disposing of all other garbage into their appropriate garbage bins, and also reporting any maintenance issues on MyPlace@SFU.
