Most helpful review

Stayed in hall for three years (2014-2017) and had three of the best years of my life. Rooms very spacious, nice people, library good, JCR decent, formals good and hall food okay. Amazing location close to everything. Only room for improvement was bar was closed when I was there and JCR underused. This might have changed.

AMAZING HALL! Had the best time here, particularly since I was in the old bit (all rooms are single study plus in the old bit) which had huge rooms. The common room was big with pool, table tennis, table football and sofas so it was great for parties and pres. Latitude, the hall bar, is brilliant. The hall gets so pretty around summer time and I couldn't recommend it more. Food in the dining hall is good too, although for a cooked breakfast you'll have to make the 1 min walk to Cripps. Dinner is served daily in Hugh Stewart.

Loved living in this hall! Almost all of the rooms are pretty big and there is a decent amount of socialising space. The location is the best there is for medical/science students, and is great for students of all other subjects too. It is one of the 4 halls that now serves a cooked breakfast (some other halls have to go to Cripps or a different hall for cooked breakfast). The staff are lovely and the food is good too. Great hall.

Good location but outdated rooms and very cliquey in blocks, nowhere to socialise apart from in corridors. Management often do the bare minimum and treat you like an annoyance with complaints.

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...
