Re: Is there any guideline and design to calculate toilets and urinals for school

How student is to urinal ratio is calculated?

Means, for 100 students, how many urinals are required and what basis those are getting calculated?

Re: Is there any guideline and design to calculate toilets and urinals for school

This depends on the building-code of the country in question. But typically figures are similar and some general guidelines from UNICEF are available, but unless you are legally required to adhere to the building-code it is worth asking some additional questions like:

- Are students allowed to leave class or does it all concentrate on the short breaks?

- Do students go home for lunch break (or is it only half-day classes anyways)?

- How many regular toilets are there as substitutes (and are those gender separated and/or partially exclusive for teachers)?

- How many simultaneous students are to be expected (think about alternating morning / afternoon classes for age groups)?

- How many times a day does it get cleaned / maintained?

Thus all in all it is hard to give a clear answer to this other then what might or might not be required by the national building-code.

Hi all,

in case you have not see the WHO guideline: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Standards for Schools in Low-cost Settings:
apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665...quence=1&isAllowed=y

And for UDDT here is a code of practice for UDDT:
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...library/details/2764

Here you find also some information on numbers of students per toilet which might be useful:
