205H deployment in Res Halls RF suggestions..

About ready to heat up our new deployment of 205Hs in our Res Halls, one per room.  I have an idea of the RF settings I want, but wanted to get some opinions from admins that did this already.  Any good suggestions on RF settings or anything else you did when deploying one WAP per room (dual band).  A school of thought for the 2.4ghz band is disable 2.4ghz for every 2 rooms or so, and only allow 20mhz channels on the 5ghz band to get enough channel diversity, but of course these will depend on RF bleeding and would be specific to building construction.

It depends on the material that the walls are made off.  Definitely do 20mhz on the 5ghz, and test your 2.4ghz at 12 and 9 and survey outside the room to see how far it penetrates.
