Trends and Ideas in Dorm Bathroom Design

Parents and prospective students often select an institution based on its facilities – including its residence halls. To live up to expectations, residence hall design has evolved from basic spaces to fully furnished homes away from home. The trend is toward more apartment-style housing, with a bathroom shared by 2-4 students. Yet the challenge faced by many colleges and universities is the number of cadre-style dorms that still have plenty of useful life.

This white paper focuses on residence hall bathroom design and three key areas that must be considered:

  • Accommodation for the disabled
  • Bather security and privacy
  • Mold, mildew and keeping it clean
