Restroom Review: Spieth Hall

Background: This isn’t one of the restrooms I visit regularly, but when I know I won’t be conducting the good ole #2, I’m not exactly so picky. Any place is good enough for me to drain the lizard…or is it? Let’s find out.

I'm glad the restroom has its own class number

Layout: I noticed there wasn’t going to be much to brag about this restroom as soon as I entered. There are four urinals next to each other, each with a tiny barricade to prevent any possible peeping eyes. Only problem is, unless you’re practically straddling the urinal, these barricades are useless. Oh well…typical. I think most of us are used to this sort of treatment by now, anyhow. There are also 3 stalls that one could use to pee (or poop but I highly suggest otherwise). Score: 2/5

Better than nothing i suppose

Cleanliness: This is the first thing that greeted me as I walked into the restroom:


Other than the empty trash can with paper towels strewn about around it, the rest of the bathroom wasn’t so bad. Besides, this isn’t UCR’s fault anyway. Sure, maybe there needs to be a few more janitorial trips to this restroom, but I mainly blame my fellow UCRers who apparently couldn’t throw a pea in the ocean (yes, I just pulled out a chickism). At least the dull lighting helped hide any other possible eye sores to a minimum. Score: 2/5

Amenities: The amenities are just as old as the rest of this bathroom. Everything is manual (flush, faucet, soap, paper towles). Not a single thing in sight is motion detected. Not a good sight for all you germaphobes. However, there was toilet paper and seat covers in every stall, soap in every dispenser, and paper towels were readily available. While the “master” stall did not have a hanger in place to hang one’s coat and/or backpack, it did have this doohickey sticking out of the wall that would probably suffice. Score: 3/5

Coat hanger...

Privacy: Not one person came in or out of this restroom the whole time I was in here taking pictures. Therefore, it doesn’t appear that there is much foot traffic coming through here (and now we know why), but there are still major privacy flaws with this restroom. For starters, this oddly placed door may creep some people out:

Maybe it's the bat cave?

Where does it lead? Who’s in there? These are questions we may never find the answers to. Also, the aforementioned urinal “barricades” provide little or no protection. Score: 1/5

Closing Statement: While this restroom is obviously older than me, it is still a viable place to utilize if all you’re in need of is a little tinkle. However, if you do decide to go #2 in this out of date restroom, at least one of the stalls holds some wonderful advice for you to ponder:

Such wisdom...



2/5 Toilets – The mustard’s off the hotdog! (yes, another chickism)

    dude, check out the restrooms in the humanities building. floors 4-7 (in the tower) have restrooms that are made for 1 person at a time. floor 4 taken? go on up to floor 5, etc.

    love, an alum.
