    Hello all!

    I know this probably sounds like a weird question (my mum made me ask!), but I was wondering generally how hot it is inside Barnes Hall at Keele (specifically the premier flats)?

    I'm trying to decide what thickness my duvet should be, i.e. should I get a thin one if it's going to be warm, or a thicker one? I'm thinking about taking a thin duvet and a couple of blankets/throws, so I can add layers if I need them. Does that sound like a good idea?

    I've visited many different halls of residence at different university open days, and some have been okay, while others have been very warm and stuffy! So now I'm not sure

    Thanks for any help

    I've had it confirmed that I can bring my own duvet and pillow, so I'm going to take a thin duvet and some extra blankets. Problem solved

    The temperature is whatever you make it really. I was in a shared flat and one of my flatmates had the temperature right down meanwhile mine was usually on 3-4 on the radiators dial, so it always felt like she was walking into a heatwave when she came into my room and I'd feel chilly in hers. The heating does cut off around 9pm if I recall correctly so unless you've had your window open all day and didn't come back till late at night the room temperature should be fine.
