Great value for money, you get what you pay for, the room sizes are huge considering they are one of the cheapest options on campus. Cleaners tidy bedrooms every 2 weeks, kitchens and bathrooms weekly. Would I return? Yes.

Lack of dining room or even a table to socialise at is unacceptable.

Really close to everything from lectures to shops/SU. Communal vibe in the halls and having cleaners for our rooms is a life saver

The students I live with are lovely but that is no thanks to Keele, At Horwood I've had expensive toiletries stolen by cleaning staff (when they bother to show up) and when another member of staff came to 'investigate' the items magically showed up in a place that I had checked countless times over the space of 3 hours. Very suspicious, would recommend searching for nearby Accomodation rather than university run halls as I now cannot trust any of the staff and have personal padlocks on everything.

Location and rooms are great, however no table in the kitchen so no real area for entire floor to go, and we could do with a hoover or something to help maintain it outside of cleaners

Needs modernising and a deep clean. Disgusting, smelly and not worth the money.

I have only just moved in here but it is surprisingly good for the money you pay. There's 4 flats to a block with 6 people in each (24 people total) so plenty of different people for you to make friends with. The bedrooms are a good size with lots of storage space and nice, comfy beds, the breeze block walls do make it feel at little prison like but nothing you can't soften up with decorations. The kitchens are big, but with one cooker between 6 and minimal kitchen space it gets a little difficult, and the table space isn't ideal as we only had 4 chairs, but it does help you learn how to live with people. The bathrooms are huge with 2 toilets, 2 sinks, a shower, and a bath, and I didn't mind sharing as it was another way to make friends (weird I know!). Any problems that we did have (so far a broken chair, broken light covering, broken hob ring, and dirty kettle) were resolved soon after we reported them which is always reassuring. The cleaners are lovely too!

Everything you could want in halls. Simple, neat, suprisingly large bedrooms. Kicthen can be used to hang out in. Fair price. Fantastic being so close to campus.

Legend had it that Horwood was like soviet Russia, but upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised, especially when I found out my block was the only one that didn't look like soviet Russia as it had been renovated. Positives to a new fresh block were exactly that it was new and shiny and mould free, however the downside was that you would get charged for every accidental dent in the wall, or for breaking the stove by jumping on it. (N.B you'll get charged anywhere for that don't do it) Although you don't have the luxury of an en suit like certain other halls, you do get the benefit of not being branded as a posh ****. It is also literally a stones throw away from the SU, fantastic for nights out, not so fantastic if you're trying to revise or sleep and there's a big night at the SU, or every Tuesday when the goth brigade go mental at KRAP which is held in Horwood bar. Speaking of Horwood bar, it's terrible but the KPA is also in Horwood, and that's pretty good. Miss you Horwood.

The location is great and the rooms are cleaned once a fortnight. The common room is old and small and there isn't one for each block, 750 students are expected to lounge in a small building near the bar. In my block there were 7 people to a tiny kitchen with two stools in it so there really wasn't enough room, but there was no problem with the sharing of two showers and one toilet even though we were all girls.

The location really is perfect. Only downside is that the water is sometimes too warm and the toilets get blocked too easily
