You likely have a favorite BYU building, but what about a favorite bathroom? Taylor A. Rees (’22), an information-systems-management grad student, certainly does. She’s visited just about every women’s bathroom on campus, rating each based on lighting, traffic, cleanliness, and design.
Rees posts each rating—complete with a bathroom selfie—to her Instagram account @bathrooms_of_byu. The page started as a joke in March 2019 but has since become a student favorite.
So what makes a campus bathroom great? “Definitely how clean it is,” says Rees. “I also really value the accessibility and the layout.” Selfie potential is important too: “Bathrooms always get extra points with me if they have full-length mirrors and full-length stall doors,” adds Rees.
If you’d like to be privy to the best campus privies, here are Rees’s suggestions:
Honorable Mentions: Museum of Art bathrooms (light traffic), Engineering Building bathrooms (nice and new), Kimball Tower upper-level bathrooms (private and clean—occasionally featuring Bath & Body Works soap!), and the third floor Tanner Building bathrooms (reliable and easy to find).
