The best and worst places to poo on campus

Tackle the daunting task of taking a dump at uni


There are a number of criteria for deciding where to relieve oneself at Leeds Uni.

Everyone has their own preference, but we surveyed a few toilets to help narrow down the choice.

It’s time to settle this once and for all: where is the best place to pass your bowels on campus?

Edward Boyle (Level 8)


Immaculate and fairly quiet, the Edward Boyle toilets are a strong contender for best place on campus to sit on the throne. There’s even a Dyson Airblade to look forward to after you’ve finished your business.

Privacy: 3/5

Cleanliness: 5/5

Entertainment: 2/5


The Union (Level 0)


The Union may not be an obvious place to drop a deuce, but the toilets here are maintained to a high standard.  You’ll also find entertainment in the drunken conversations of Terrace punters.

Privacy: 1/5

Cleanliness: 4/5

Entertainment: 3/5


The Union (Old Bar)


The Old Bar toilets are unquestionably in the running for worst place to defecate on campus. Using a toilet with no seat is a grim prospect, but a cubicle with no door doesn’t bear thinking about. While the privacy leaves a lot to be desired, you may find yourself enlightened by the punters, especially if duty calls on pub quiz night.

Privacy: 0/5

Cleanliness: 2/5

Entertainment: 4/5


EC Stoner (level 10)


The EC Stoner toilets are quite secluded, which makes them an ideal choice if you’re seeking privacy. The graffiti on the cubicle doors will also provide you with adequate entertainment – aside from the typical sexual offerings, you may find yourself engaging in a debate about wiping technique.

Privacy: 4/5

Cleanliness: 3/5

Entertainment: 4/5



The Brotherton toilets may just be the perfect place to pinch a loaf. What they lack in entertainment, they make up for in sheer privacy and cleanliness.  Besides, there’s a large selection of books close at hand to ease your boredom…

Privacy: 5/5

Cleanliness: 4/5

Entertainment: 2/5



You may have heard the Parkinson toilets are a hotspot for shagging, but don’t let this put you off – no glory holes have been found as of yet. Regardless of those rumours, the toilets are clean and fairly quiet. You’ll also find a disabled toilet nearby, should you require absolute privacy.

Privacy: 3/5

Cleanliness: 4/5

Entertainment: 2/5


So from our findings, we can conclude the best places to take a crap on campus are EC Stoner and Brotherton. Meanwhile, the Old Bar thrones take the crown of worst toilet – just don’t bother.
