The are no hot water taps in the student dorms at the university where I work. So the students buy large thermoses and fill them with hot water at an outdoor filling station. The students then bring their thermoses up to their dorm room. The hot water is used to wash their faces and feet as well as for drinking.
There also aren’t any shower rooms in the dorm buildings. Students must leave the dorm and go to one of the shower buildings to get clean. The showers are not free. The showers have a coin operated timer, and the water temperature cannot be controlled.
Most of the dorm rooms house eight students. The arrangement is four, double bunk beds. It’s cramped and there is zero privacy. If a student pays a little more money, he or she can get a room with a total of four people.
