Finding a bathroom on campus can be tough, particularly when there are so many nasty ones around campus — have you seen the bathrooms in Foellinger? Have no fear, though, because you can always count on the Illini Union to have a clean toilet waiting for you.

The Union is the perfect location for the best bathroom. It’s right on the Main Quad — at the north end, to be exact — so you’re bound to pass it on your way to class. Or, if you need a bathroom break in between classes and can’t stomach the building you’re in, just head to the Union. It’s close enough that you won’t be late.

There are plenty of bathrooms in the building, but the best one, by far, is the Union basement. I’ve never seen a toilet clogged, or a mess made, and it’s a bathroom that doesn’t stink. Instead, it smells like cleaning products. It smells clean. You can always count on the basement bathrooms to be neat and tidy and clean.

Now, these aren’t the most decorated bathrooms, like you’d find in the English building. It’s a simple, gray aesthetic and looks a little drab. But don’t mistake its lack of decoration and good lighting for being a bad bathroom. A good bathroom needs to be clean and functional, and the Union gives you exactly that in their basement locations.

So, the next time you need to head into the restroom, try the Union. The basement, specifically. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
