This is a fairly elementary question posed by you and the answer is one that you should be able to derive on your own. I have provided the same for your convenience.

5 cups of water are to be used by 6 students. So each student gets 1/6 of 5 cups or 5/6 cups each.

The fraction that each student gets is 5/6 cups.
