Having no table seems like a small inconvenience, but really after nine till five day, coming home to cook a meal for 30 minutes and Then having nowhere to sit Down and eat it- it's awful. Lindsay Hall Block D has no table apart from your desk table so group eating/sit downMeals aren't even a possibility unless you count standing up at the counter in the kitchen. Constantly see/hear of friends in other uni's or halls you are having meals together as a flat or as a block. pre drinks involve sitting on the floor or bringing your desk chair into another persons room- not ideal and not even for buying our room table to eat at. Seems like a basic thing that's missing and would make a world of difference. No communal area either apart from external basic common room not in our block. Would you pay a lot more just to live in different halls with table.

Student Review: 2.1 /5
By JustAnotherMember110 On 13th August 18

I lived in Lindsay hall E Block. In my opinion this is the worst block to go for simply because it's shared with 50 students and there are only 2 kitchens which are located on the second floor (if you have social anxiety then this is NOT for you (unless you make friends with everyone)). Within the first couple of weeks living there, the other students had aleady smashed the entrance door, broke all the cookers and other few things (the cost will come out of everyones deposit). The only good things about these halls are where it is located and the room cleaner. The halls are next to Lindsay bar and I had a very nice cleaning lady! Nearly all the rooms have mould in and you have to share the showers & toilets which can be a pain if you have horrid house mates. I told my cleaner about the mould and she cleaned it up straight away for me! The other cleaners wouldn't clean the bathrooms at times because it's not their job to clean up vomit and faeces. So treat your cleaner well

Lindsay is a great hall, the Premier En Suite rooms were the best accomodation at the time on campus. The pricing was very reasonable when compared to other Universities. Lindsay is blessed with one of the best locations on campus with Lindsay Bar on site and close proximity to the main academic buildings. It has a great sense of community as well as stunning views over the Staffordshire countryside that make excellent Instagram shots!

Most rooms covered in mould- nothing done ever works because uni doesn't put money or time into fixing it- it's a health hazard for everyone who lives here. Kitchen space is too small for amount of residents. Kitchen is used as social space as there is no where else. This makes it more cramped. A lot of the time hobs and ovens don't work as well. Corridor is also used as social space- this is very noisy and can be heard from rooms. Internet access is poor, IT services want to check all your personal electronics before admitting the WIFI is terrible and do something about it- this is not acceptable as it's a university and we pay for it in our contracts. No group face to face communication has been given in regards to halls management- nothing from RSAs or security, nothing after people kept moving fire extinguishers. Walk to lindsay needs more Street lights also. Only good thing is the cleaners- better value for money in different halls.

Old run down blocks, wouldn't be a problem if place wasn't filled with damp, maintenance staff don't do enough but from what I've heard from them the orders come from above. Feels like a quick cash grab by the university until they finally replace these aging halls and seemingly against investing into any fixes or improvements. Many of the terms of contract are being breached. Internet coverage is varied and some rooms have none, any complaints you have however will be blamed on your devices and there is an overly long bureaucratic process to get this resolved and it seems I.T staff have been told to do as little about it as possible.

The living arrangements in regards to sharing a small kitchen with 12 others was horrific, however, I think it encouraged us as a flat to get to know each other, making us great friends in the process. I love my room, it's cosy. Howver, it's damn well freezing daily.

Absolute nightmare living here due to the whole building being accessible to everyone. After every night out for one person, the whole floor gets woken up. Kitchens are far too small for the number of people and repairs take weeks.

Lindsay is in an ideal location on the campus. The only let down is the fact that the common room, The Hexagon, isn't within the block, and there is no dining space in the kitchen.

Halls are great! Rooms are well designed and very spacious for the costs. Only problems are the fact we must share 2 kitchens between an entire block. Rather ridiculous as all universities I have friends at have one kitchen for 8! Also don't appreciate that the number of people per kitchen is not made clear online before you come to keele. Only other problem is that I find it rather surreal we are not provided with toilet roll. No university I have visited has expected students to bring they're own loo roll and once again this is not made apparent on the accommodation website.

Needs updating. Showers are good but lack power and turn on and off when both in and out of the shower. Windows can break easily and are susceptible to the weather meaning they don't close properlyz
