These include Birchen, Burbage, Cratcliffe, Derwent, Froggart, Howden, Millstone, Lawrencefield, Stanage and Yarncliffe.

For example, all blocks are ensuite rooms with a communal kitchen and living room, which contains a kettle, toaster, microwave, oven and hob. The iron and ironing board are also included. But the number of rooms in each block is different and whether you have a single or double room, one or two microwaves, a breakfast bar or dining table depends on where you live and how many people you live with.
