the bathrooms vary from dorm to dorm. I def wouldnt describe any of the cornell dorm bathrooms as "gates of hell." the dorms set up as suites generally have about 6 people sharing a bathroom that has 1 toilet, 2 sinks, and a shower. these bathrooms have a pretty homey feel, and they stay pretty clean. other dorms like donlon and im guessing dickson have bigger bathrooms for a larger number of people just like any public bathroom with stalls, but they also have showers. from what i have seen they arent too bad though. theyre pretty clean and it doesnt seem like people have trouble sharing the bathroom space or anything. i really dont think its anything to worry about. haha wow i cant believe i just wrote that much about.. bathrooms.
If you live in Dickson or Donlon you're looking at sharing a 6-toilet, 4-shower, 8-sink bathroom with about 25 people.
If you live anywhere else you're going to share a 1-toilet, 2 or 3-sink, 1-shower bathroom with 5 other people.
All the bathrooms are fine and are cleaned daily by staff.
this is random but did anyone ever visit Columbia and go inside a dorm? hey, great school but WOAHHH i went into this kid's dorm just because a tour was small and he was like ok i'll just take you guys into my room...it was pretty gross, no offense to him personally. mainly the bathroom though, that's what i remember and that's why this post reminded me of it. each room of 2 ppl had a bathroom in this building which was like a dingy old apartment complex that had like 20 floors and an elevator. anyhow, yea the bathrooms were disgusting...
