The wifi is quite dodgy, best bringing an ethernet cable if you plan on using a console. Free bus pass is great. The food is decent but there's always jacket potatoes available if you don't fancy either of the 2 main courses. Always someone going out, assuming you make the most of freshers and get to know people in the other blocks. If anything breaks they'll fix it within a few days of you reporting it to reception. Shared bathroom is fine, never had to wait for a shower in the morning since it's rare for people to be getting up at the same time. Kitchen is decent for pres, bit small but you can easily get everyone in, it's great for beer pong. The balcony is great if you're a smoker. Can be a pain if you don't drive since it's so far from the city center, but chances are you'll get to know a fair few people that do drive. Had a great first year here, definitely prefer it to the courtyard or lambert (Looks like an insane asylum).
Living in Morgan was great because it was a great way to begin socialising as my block mates and I could all go for dinner together at the Lawns buffet. The distance from uni and town was annoying but the 103/105 bus was convenient and came frequently. The hall itself was fine, however many kitchen items were taken if not washed only the day that they were found, I've always made it a prerogative to clean up after myself, but if I had a late night snack I couldn't wash my plate if there was no running hot water.
Good for socialising, with around 25 people in the block you're bound to make friends with a good few people. However, it also means you're likely to clash with a couple of them, even though you're placed based on the attributes you state about yourself. The amount of people isn't good if you don't like going out because there is usually someone pre-drinking in a kitchen with very loud music and a lot of people, not great when you've got a 9:15 the next day. Bit of a long way from uni but can't complain with a free bus pass, just a bit of a ball ache that you have to set off like 30 minutes before your lecture, if you just want to roll out of bed and be there you'd be better in Taylor court or a house. Problems/broken things rarely get sorted/fixed and if they do, it's months later when you're passed caring. Cleaners do a good job however they make as much noise as humanly possible when they come at like 8am, shouting to each other down the stairs and banging stuff.
The halls were located a 20 minute bus ride away from the uni but Hull provided free passes for the year. The Internet was okay most of the time but could be a little temperamental. Warden facilities was something I found useful and the evening meal aspect was an added bonus.
