Living in halls? Please read and respond.Watch
Basically, I want to know if you have bins (and/or a removal service for the contents) provided in your bathrooms at your residences. If you don’t mind saying whether you do/don’t and what Uni you are at I would really appreciate it.
We’re basically having an ongoing dispute with the residence group/management of our halls (so far consisting of a complaint from us and a curt brush-off from them) with regards to the fact that as of this year they are no longer providing any sanitary facilities in the communal bathrooms in their residences. Given that the halls consist of large, mixed flats (in mine, seven out of nine are female), this has proven extremely irritating for obvious reasons.
I’m now just trying to establish whether we are being unreasonable in expecting them to be provided or not. The friends I have asked at other universities have said that they have them in their flats, but I’m want to get a broader view so that I can either give up, or feel justified in pursuing this further.
I’d appreciate any responses.
I have en-suite, so perhaps my experience isn't quite what you're looking for, but I'm sure it applies in the communal bathrooms as well.
We have those sanitary bin things in our rooms, and they're collected one thursday every month. We thought that was bad, but no sanitary fascilities?! You definately have a reason to think your uni's unreasonable, I say keep going with what you're doing
This is at Hampstead, King's College London.
Only seen them emptied once so far though in five weeks (it isn't an issue in my flat but I guess it might be in others).
I have to use my own little waste bin and make sure I empty it each day when I'm on.
I've briefly seen the loos at the University-owned accommodation (without ensuite) amd I can honestly say I don't recall seeing sanitary bins there either

I'm at Cambridge, And everywhere I've been has had a sanitary bin in every cubicle - even if its very small and there isn't actually room for it!
Edit: Add a poll?
Aston - We have two for the bathroom.
