    Hello

    I'm a Keele postgraduate and when I visited the University over the summer noticed that Horwood O Block is closed and boarded up.

    I just wondered why? Is it being refurbished or demolished?

    Cheers

    Keele uni is currently undergoing a large accommodation re development. Horwood O has been closed for a while and will be demolished to create new Horwood accommodation

    I live next to Horwood O Block. I believe that the block was closed due to a high number of suicides associate with the block.:sadnod:

    It wouldn't make sense to close it for refurbishment during semester unless the building is unsafe.

    I have no idea what the future plans are for the building but I hope it isn't wasted.

    Ah. That would make sense as a reason for closure.
