cold water in shower in new apartment


I cannot get really cold water in the shower of my new apartment, and I assume the is because it has a mixer valve, different fron my old apartment. Is there any way to make the water colder,as in my previous apartment?

Well that's a first, someone wanting a cold shower.
Is the cold water also to warm at the other faucets in the house?
If the water heater is in your apartment check to see if the temp. set to high.
The anti scald valve inside the shower valve can sometimes be adjusted or taken apart and cleaned if it's sticking.
