Each corridor has single-gender bathroom facilities, with toilet stalls, showers, and sinks. Bader Hall comes equipped with a coin-operated laundry and storage facilities, as well as several kitchenettes, each containing a fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle, sink, and storage units — all accessible at any time. A number of Common Rooms can also be found inside Bader Hall: two of them are equipped with sofas and comfortable chairs, a TV, VCR player, and VHS tapes; whilst others are reserved for group or quiet study, with desks and chairs. There is also a games room with games consoles.
