FAQ: Shared bathrooms

How many people share a bathroom at Connaught Hall?
We have 230 rooms on 6 floors; each floor has two toliet/shower blocks (one male, one female) with three toilet stalls and three shower cubicles in each block. 19 rooms have ensuite facilities.
On average, then, about 21 people share each block of three toilets & showers.
That's one toilet stall or one shower cubicle per 7 residents.
Everyone gets up at different times due to different lecture schedules, so in practice it is very unusual to see any queues for the showers.
The bathrooms are fully cleaned every day, Monday-Friday, and have a "light clean" on Saturdays, Sundays, and bank holidays.
