All the accommodation at Liverpool is overpriced. However, crown place is central to campus, en suite for both double and single rooms and offers studio rooms which include a TV and kitchen area which makes the cost slightly less painful. It is EXTREMELY hot all year round, which isn't too devastating in winter but for your own sanity pack lots of t-shirts and shorts for the less cold months. There isn't any real study space which a lot of the other halls offer, but it is in a central location to both libraries so it's not too much hassle going over to get your work done. It's designed in blocks, A-H, and your room card will allow you into your block and your flat. This is great for security but not so good when you've turned up at pres a little late, no ones checking their phone and they can't hear you knocking on the flat door to get in. The RAs who exist purely to ruin your fun at pres are a lot less strict at crown in comparison to some other halls so that is a bonus at least. The reception area at crown is the only social area, it has a ping pong table and a pool table but no one really uses it that much since it involves going outside to get to and as you'll learn very quickly, Liverpool is absolutely Baltic. The rooms themselves are a good size. It's worth paying the extra for the double because you do actually get a bigger desk and more wardrobe space as well as the bigger bed and lets face it you're probably never paying back all your loan anyway so make the most of it.
