LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The University of California will designate gender-neutral restrooms at its 10 campuses to accommodate transgender students, in a move that may be the first of its kind for a system of colleges in the United States.

University of California President Janet Napolitano's office said in a statement on Monday that the action stems from an effort to make the system more welcoming to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

Under the plan, all single-stall restrooms at University of California campuses will be converted to gender-neutral facilities, officials said, and newly built and renovated campuses will also have such accommodations that can be used by everyone.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - AT&T Inc expects that customer use of its equipment installment plan will have reached 50 percent in the third quarter, the company said in a regulatory filing on Tuesday, fewer customers than analysts expected.

Last year, faced with growing competition from rivals, AT&T debuted its NEXT equipment financing plan, which decouples the cost of service from the cost of devices.

In July, AT&T said it expected two-thirds of its customers to be on the plan by the end of the year.
