Cripps is one of the prettiest halls. The hall has an old fashioned appearance with a Harry Potter style dining hall, bar, wooden panelled library, JCR common room and gym. The rooms are large with 3/4 beds. Theres the option of single study rooms to ensure plus rooms that are regularly cleaned by the hall. The hall runs almost ku monthly evening formals and nights out. The best year of my life was spent in this hall and I would recommend it to anyone!!

Q
What room type would you put to get into Cripps over Lincoln and Wortley please
By member831401 On 16th April 18
Q
How can I maximise my chances of getting into Cripps if I apply to the North Zone - don't really want to stay in the other halls
By member430620 On 1st March 18
Apply early. To be honest since they do it in zones, you have 1/3 chances of getting Cripps
By member1131186 On 27th March 18
Q
How many of the rooms are study plus? And can you apply for specific halls?

02/12/17 Cripps Hall is a beautiful thing. The rooms are mostly en suite plus and are very spacious. You can tell that Cripps is the oldest hall on campus because the buildings have so much character. The library is very good. The food is better than you would expect, so long as you like corner yogurts (they appear on the menu at least 3 times a week). The JCR is basic and underused. The bar is a nice space to work or socialise with a pool table, however the actual bar which serves drinks is never open. Cripps also has a small (but free) gym with some basic equipment that may satisfy your needs. Cripps is ideally located and the closest hall to most campus buildings. Everyone is lovely and you are near guaranteed a good freshers experience here.

One of the oldest halls and has NOT been renovated. The rooms are a great size but desperately need updating. Best location of all the halls (only exception is if you do humanities) as it's the closest to the shops and in the very centre of campus

Yes Cripps doesn't have everything, but we have the best rooms on campus (consistently anyway, they're all fab!), and if nothing else the very quick dinner queue should make us the best over some halls that wait so much longer.

The social life in this hall is amazing! So many formals and after formal parties to enjoy! Also, it's situated in the middle of campus so you can literally be a couple of minutes away from where your lectures are! Oh and only hall in campus to have (almost) double beds...

Best hall on campus despite some issues but the hall management need to get off their a**e and need to fix JCR and bar needs opening and not run by useless bar management. Best place socially and geographically though!

One of the most beautiful halls on campus. Very friendly and helpful management team, rooms are a good size with double beds, formals are best on campus. Good location for majority of subjects (particularly for geography, economics, maths and science)
