Room Numbers

Crown Place

Here’s a quick explanation of what your room number means… 

Crown Place is split into 3 ‘blocks’ and 8 ‘cores’ within those blocks. Block 1 consists of cores A, B and C. Block 2 is cores D, E and F and Block 3 is cores G and H.
The letter at the start of your room number is your core then.
The first number after the letter shows what floor you’re on. In some cases you might have a second set of letters here rather than a number. This is to represent the ground floor (letter G) or lower ground floor (letters LG). 
Don’t worry if you see an LG in your room number for lower ground floor, you are still above ground! It’s just the way the site slopes that means we call these floors LG – it’s essentially a ground floor room. 

The final three digits of your room number show your cluster flat and room number in the cluster flat (so e.g. 101 is cluster flat 1, room 01). 
If you have an S or SX at the end of your room number this just shows you are in a studio room (but don’t panic if you were allocated a studio room but don’t see these letters at the end – oddly not all studio rooms carry these letters at the end!). 

So… 
A1.303 in Block 1 is Core A, Floor 1, Cluster flat 3, bedroom 03 
DG.105 in Block 2 is Core D, Ground Floor, Cluster flat 1, bedroom 05

There is a neutral tone used on the majority of walls but there will then be a ‘feature colour’ wall:Core A – Light blue / Core B – Green / Core C – Orange / Core D – Red / Core E – Dark Blue / Core F – Yellow / Core G – Purple / Core H – Turquoise. 

There is a wardrobe and some space for storage under the bed.

Melville Grove

Here’s a quick explanation of what your room number means… 

We have 49 Houses at Melville.The first part of your room number represents your house number. 
The part after that is your room number in the house (and usually around 7 rooms per house). 

To give you an idea then here are some examples of what the numbers mean: 
11 - House number 1, room 1487 - House number 48, room 7243 - House number 24, room 3

There are a variety of wall colours from purple, blue, lime green and plain white. These are specific to room, rather than house, so will vary depending on your exact room. Carpets are all dark grey. There is a wardrobe and some space for storage under the bed.

Philharmonic Court 

Here’s a quick explanation of what your room number means… 

The letter at the start of your room number is your Block. 
The first number after the letter shows what floor you’re on (0 is ground floor,1 is first floor, 2 is second floor etc). 
The last two numbers are your flat number and your room number within that flat. 

So… 
A132 is Block A, Floor 1, Flat 3, bedroom 2 
D021 is Block D, Ground Floor, Flat 2, bedroom 1 

These rooms have grey walls and a coloured feature wall that varies for each room, you can see some example photos by following the link below.

For storage there is a wardrobe, under bed storage and also a cupboard at the back of the bed which can store narrow items.
