If you have a water heater in the unit there may be a shut off before that, usually at the floor or follow the cold side to a shut off. There may be an access panel behind the shower, possible in a hall closet but not always and there might be shut off valves there, but not likely. If your water heater is in the basement, there should be a shut off for each unit there.
