We just initial our freezer food with a sharpie and then put it in a carrier bag for easier identification. Takes two seconds and really saved us a lot of hassle and arguments.

One problem I had living in halls in my 1st year was people cheekily taking your stuff out of the freezer. This is particularly a problem if people all buy the same chips or something so nobody knows which is their's and just helps themselves to the closest one. Or people forget what they've bought as it gets moved around and buried by stuff so they buy more and by week 6 you can barely get the door to close! To save being too sad and labelling all your food - one tip is to get those big zip-lock bags and stick all your freezer stuff in one. That way you always know where your stuff is, how much you've got and a thief is less likely to help themself when it's all tucked away and will probably be missed!
OP: during my first year at Keele I didn't really have any major problems with sharing things. There were a few occasions where someone had used something and not washed up immediately but on the whole it wasn't too bad. We have two cupboards each plus a drawer and two fridges and freezers between 6 of us (Barnes X so new build with so much space) but my girlfriend's experience of Keele was the polar opposite. My kitchen was about ten times the size of hers! We had to share cupboards and kept the majority of the food in our bedroom but everything was constantly vanishing or being left dirty because there just wasn't the space to avoid sharing.

I have a question about the induction hobs, what kind of cookware is compatible with it?
You can also buy "Adapters" that convert induction heat to your bog standard heat, but I don't know if these are supplied by Keele. Like this one: http://www.armorica.co.uk/mauviel-in...rter-disc.html
