In defence of the college - vomit is very easy to clean off a granite counter-top and crab-infested bed sheets require safe burning in a fire pit.

My dorm was a temporary building that was supposed to be replace in 1964. I lived there in the mid 90s.

Dorm junior and senior year was previously the local hospital.  Barely converted to a upperclass quiet study dorm.  Rooms still had a lot of the hospital plumbing hookups, oxygen connections, etc.  Still had the gold leaf numbers and lettering on the doors.  Bathroom sink was knee actuated (i..e scrub sink).  Lived proudly senior in the old Delivery Room (still said it on the door).  Lounge down the hall was the old style nursery with the glass window to peer at the babies through.

Actually met someone in town who had been born in my dorm room.

My dorm tomb was beneath a football stadium and it was more like a Turkish prison cell than a dorm room. $90/ semester so no lasting complaints

These singletons are even less keen on trekking down the hallway to the common bathroom (especially now that so many are gender-neutral).

Why it may sound exciting to share bathrooms with sexy coeds, the truth is more sinister.
The last thing I want to see is uber hot Jaclyn from Econ 101 walking into the bathroom at 8.30 am with messy hair, bad breath and sitting on the commode next stall over from me hearing her farting and squeezing our a few large dueces..

...sorry I'm not German.
