Living in university accommodation can be an exciting and enriching experience for students, and so providing them with comfortable and convenient living spaces is crucial for their wellbeing. One aspect of student accommodation that can greatly impact students' lives is the university shower facilities they have access to in Halls. Shared shower facilities can be a major source of inconvenience, discomfort, and even stress for students, especially in a time when hygiene is more important than ever.

That's where en-suite self-contained shower cubicles can become a boon to university estates managers and rental providers. In this article, we'll be discussing why en-suite shower cubicles and self-contained shower pods are a must for modern high quality university accommodation and the benefits they offer to students.

1. Convenience

En-suite shower cubicles offer students the convenience of having their own private showers within their University Halls living space. This eliminates the need to queue for shared showering facilities and reduces the likelihood of awkward encounters with other students. Queuing for a shower is a common experience for anyone who has lived in a busy shared student ‘digs’ before, and it can be particularly frustrating when you have classes to attend or a busy schedule. With an en-suite shower, students can enjoy the luxury of a personal shower whenever they need it, without worrying about the presence of other residents.

2. Privacy

With en-suite shower cubicles, students can maintain their privacy while showering. This is particularly important for students uncomfortable sharing wash facilities with others. Some students might feel uneasy taking a shower with someone else in the room, and this can impact their mental health and wellbeing. By providing them with an en-suite shower, you can help them feel more comfortable and confident in their living space. This simple addition can also make a big difference in students' overall experience of university life.

3. Hygiene

En-suite shower cubicles can help maintain better hygiene standards in university halls, as students do not have to share direct shower facilities with others, reducing the risk of catching infections or seasonal bugs. Shared wash facilities are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, including flu and Covid-19, and this can pose a significant health hazard to students living in shared halls. By providing residents with their own self-contained shower cubicles, you can help reduce the risk of infection and promote a healthier living environment. This can also be reassuring for parents who are concerned about their children's health and wellbeing while they are away from home.

4. Timesaving

En-suite showers can save time for students, especially during the morning rush when everyone is getting ready for classes. With an en-suite shower, students can get ready without waiting for others to finish using shared bathroom facilities. This can be a major source of stress for students who are already under pressure to meet coursework deadlines and attend classes. By providing them with a stress-free showering solution, you can help them feel more relaxed and focused on their studies.

5. Increased Value

Student housing properties with en-suite showers tend to be more attractive to students and can command higher rental rates, making them a good investment for university accommodation providers and private landlords alike. Providing students with modern and convenient living spaces is key to attracting and retaining them year-on-year, and en-suite shower cubicles are a must-have feature for many of them. Many students are willing to pay more for premium facilities, and en-suite showers can be a valuable addition to any accommodation package.
