College Toilet FAQ
How many toilets should a college have?
Wondering how many college toilets you need? According to British Standard 6465-1: 2006+A12009, these are the numbers of toilets and other sanitary facilities a school or college should have:
- For female washrooms, there should be 1 toilet per 20 students
- For male washrooms there should be 1 toilet per 20 students and urinals should not make up over two-thirds of the male fixtures.
It is essential that your establishment has the appropriate amount of college toilets to accommodate the number of students.
Considerations for college toilets
Here are a few things you should consider before carrying out a college toilet project:
- What is your budget?
- Who will be using the washroom? For example, is this college toilet intended for one gender or will it be unisex?
- How would you like your college toilets to look? Washrooms can really echo the theme and tone of your educational institution. This is why at Commercial Washrooms, we have a range of different product styles to suit your needs.
How to improve college toilets
We recognise that school and college toilets are all different and treat each college toilet project as an individual case. Here is how we can help you to improve school and college toilets:
- Providing vandal resistant sanitaryware - this ensures that your washroom facilities are as durable and robust as possible, meaning that your college toilets will stand the test of time after many uses.
- Provide good hand washing facilities - it is very important to make sure that college toilets include fully functioning hand washing facilities such as soap dispensers and basins to maintain a clean and safe environment.
- Invest in eco-friendly products - eco-friendly products such as waterless urinals will help to save money in the long run and will help against wasting water.
- Effective odour control - nobody enjoys a washroom which smells unpleasant and college toilets are no exception! Odour control will keep your washrooms smelling clean and help to control harmful bacteria in the air.
- Make sure your college toilets fit in with the college’s theme - for example, you may wish to opt for coloured toilet cubicles and IPS panels which represent the college’s colours.
Of course, it is also vital for staff to regularly check on college toilets to ensure that there are plenty of supplies and the area is well maintained and cleaned.
