Triple versus double room?

<p>I need some opinions.</p>

<p>I'm currently doing some housing forms and I have two choices for freshman housing:</p>

<p>1) A double room with a community bathroom
2) A triple room with a private bathroom</p>

<p>Now, I REALLY would like a private bathroom. Yet, I don't know if living with two girls will be just too overwhelming. I was told that there's more of a sense of "community" in dorms that share a bathroom. It's also worth noting that if I choose the second option I will have to clean the bathroom myself, which I don't mind, but I would rather not clean it :P</p>

<p>So, what do you guys think?</p>

<p>I went for the private bathrooms, personally. It was a good call especially for co-ed floors because the boys on the floor were pigs.
Living with two girls isn't that big of a difference than one. I lived in a suite and shared a bathroom with 3 other girls.</p>

<p>If you want to go for the triple, that's your choice. However, consider these factors before you submit your housing application:</p>

<p>-Is bathroom privacy worth the extra $$$ needed to maintain the cleanliness of the bathroom (because nobody is going to clean it for you...unless it's public)?</p>

<p>-Is bathroom privacy worth the extra $$$ spent on bathroom utilities that would otherwise be provided to and restocked for you on a daily basis?</p>

<p>-Do you cringe at the idea of your privacy being compromised by one <em>more</em> person than you really want in your dorm?</p>

<p>I'm sure you can think of more, but I would go for the double, personally.</p>

<p>^I'm sorry for my ignorance, but is cleaning your own bathroom such a tedious and time-consuming task? I know I sound extremely dumb right now, to be honest I've never cleaned my own bathroom - I've always had someone to do it. Although I sound ignorant, I'd rather sound like that that not knowing the answer to this question :P The thing is...you did make very good points.</p>

<p>At my school, the bathrooms were cleaned weekly by house keeping like clockwork. They'd let themselves in if no one answered the door and clean from top to bottom and leave.</p>

<p>@xlightmeup: It was really the '$$$' factor that I thought was pertinent. As with ladeeda, housekeeping does the same for public bathrooms at my school. They honestly do a much better job than I, or anyone else I know for that matter, could ever do.</p>
