    When you use a menstrual cup and have to clean it. I would not appreciate someone banging on the door if I'm trying to remove/clean/reinsert the damn thing, it's tricky enough!

    Haha yeah I was going to say. I think ensuite is worth it for girls, but not necessarily guys. There's so much that happens during the menstrual cycle that only girls have to deal with and it's way better to have some privacy and no time limits

    I think a basin is enough personally but the small talk on the way to the toilet thing has never been more true, have definitely been dragged on a night out after meeting someone on the way out

    The main reason universities like having en suite rooms is that they can charge more, both to students and to out of term residential conferences (when there's typically at least £10 a day premium...)

    You very probably don't have an en suite at home, and anyone who can't think of a lot better things to do with c£1,200 a year than pay to have your own private toilet has some serious problems.

    For most people it's a luxury, but you should never forget that there are people with certain health problems for whom it's a godsend.

    Pretty sure there's a difference between sharing a bathroom with your family and sharing with 4-12 random students. I chose an ensuite because i can afford one and i refuse to go to an accommodation without one.

    Ironically the people who reply with posts like yours are the ones that were forced to (rather than chose to) share a bathroom

    Very true.
    Also, like I mentioned a while ago, it holds more benefits for girls than for guys.

    No, I had a wide range of halls to choose from for my undergraduate studies, and went for one with shared bathrooms rather than en suite. Amongst other things, that meant we had baths as well as ('rather than just') showers.

    And more money.

    And when you go into second year and get a shared house?

    Or are you planning on living in private halls throughout your course?
