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.
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.
