Great atmosphere, modern good size rooms, campus is a 5 minute walk and so are plenty of student run social facilities such as a pub and a local shop.

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.

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

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.
