    Haha! Yeah I've heard there have been alot of complaints about Crewe. I think they're still deciding what to do with it at the moment because when Ranmoor reopens they won't really need it.
    Oh really? I didn't realise. I mean, it's bad because things keep breaking but the building from the outside is beautiful and it has tennis courts, close to uni etc. so it's not *that* bad. Like, it's probably better than Endcliffe Vale (although The Vale is better socially and it has baths!).

    TBH I'd rather be in Crewe than around The Edge, whenever I'm around there it is more like a playground than students' accommodation haha

    Yes I agree, its probably not as bad as they make out. Obviously its alot less popular than lots of the newer accomodation at the moment, so I think they are thinking of ways to make it more appealing!

    Its not so bad! I kind of agree with the Playground thing, but only to an extent.
    I think Froggat, Howden are definately some of the louder blocks but it seems quite peaceful down by Millstone...

    Is it a lot less popular? I actually requested to be in Crewe because I thought it was nicer. Rooms are certainly a lot bigger and it's cheaper. Not en suite but plenty of showers so I only actually share with one other person and it gets cleaned for you every week.

    Yes I think it is the fact its not En Suite and near the edge that make it less popular. Aparently thats what most accomodation applicants want according to accom and campus services.
    Its silly for them to say that though, as I think everyone has different tastes etc.

    That is silly! I also think the maps are misleading...yeah Crewe and Stephenson aren't right outside The Edge, it's like a two minute walk! We have our own laundry room as well so we don't have to carry it over there. Oh wells I still think Crewe is ****, btw. Just not as bad as people make it out to be!
