Default Routine Advice

Hey guys, long time lurker. First I just want to say the info I've obtained from this site is amazing. I'm pretty new to weight lifting, I've been lifting for about 6 months. I was at college when I began lifting but now I'm back "home". We just got a new Rec Center put in but they have limited equipment for me to use. There are no other gyms around here and I can't afford to invest in equipment for the time being. I'm 5'11 190. Anyways my dilemma is that I don't really have any direction on a routine. I was doing a 5x5 at college. This Rec Center I'll be using has DBs going up to 50lbs. My DB max is 15 reps. They have a dip station, pullup bar, a lot of machines for chest,shoulders,lats, and a leg press and leg curl. There is a preacher curl machine and some EZ and straight bars that go from 20-60. They also have a cable machine and a lot of bands and that's it. No bench press or squat rack or barbells for that matter. Anyone who can offer advice I am open to it, and I would like to say thank you for anyone who took the time to read this longwinded explanation. Any other questions just feel free to ask and I'll provide answers as best I can about my situation. Thank you again.

What kind of routine would you suggest? A split or fullbody?

Do a split and be resourceful. You can use a lot of stuffs to work out without those expensive equipments. Get creative.

Splits are better then full body workout everyday because muscles need rest and time to recover too dosn't matter if its 3x or 4x

I train at home,so do not have a lot of equipment.ie, Weights about 300 pounds, a bench,pullup bar,dipping bars,
resistence bands.I can still get a good workout with limited stuff.

To stop yourself from getting bored change your routine every 2-4 weeks.
ie.straight sets for 2-4 weeks.
super sets ::::::::::::::::
Drop sets ::::::::::::::::
high reps ::::::::::::::::
Then back to straight set etc.

Then take a lay off and start a new 12 week training block with different techniques,something you have not tried.
