Pit Stops: University of the District of Columbia

Pay no mind to that girl in the corner.

Part of an occasional series on restrooms of interest. Peed anywhere neat recently? Drop me a line: ldepillis@washingtoncitypaper.com.

The University of the District of Columbia's facilities have been improving rapidly since President Allen Sessoms came into office. Even people who aren't happy about other changes at the university will admit the formerly dark and dangerous garage got fixed, the drab walls got painted, elevators got repaired. A preponderance of the restrooms are also quite handsome, trimmed and floored in a uniform brown threaded stone, and all immaculately clean (which could have to do with very low traffic on the main campus these days). Apparently, however, the restrooms looked like that before Sessoms arrived, and so must've been nicely maintained by the District's former Office of Property Management. Regardless, there's one thing at least that contributes to a scholarly environment.
