What does my room number and colour mean?

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



Vine Court


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

The letter at the start of your room number is your block. We have three blocks in the West Block (A, B and C) and three in the East Block (D, E and F).
The next part of the room number is your floor. So if you have a 1 you’re on the first floor, 2 you’re on the second floor etc. We also have some room numbers here that will have letters instead of a number. G means ground floor, and GM means Mezzanine floor (between ground and first).
Then the rest of your room number is your room on that floor.

So...
A3059 is A block, 3rd floor, room 59CGM014 is C block, Mezzanine floor, room 14
etc etc
To give you an idea of how many people will be living near you, if you're catered you'll be on a corridor with up to 16 people, and if you're self-catered you'll be in a flat with up to 8 people.
 


Dover 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 (1 is first floor, 2 is second floor etc). If you have a letter G here instead this means ground floor.
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
DG21 is Block D, Ground Floor, Flat 2, bedroom 1


 
Philharmonic Court 

Here is how your room number works... 

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
 


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


 
Rankin Hall

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

The letter is your block and there are four blocks in Rankin (A, B, C and D).
The first number is the floor you are on - so 0 being ground floor, 1 being first etc.
The remaining numbers are your room number on that floor.
Therefore room number A218 is A block, floor 2, room 18.


 
McNair Hall


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

The letter is your block and there are three blocks in McNair (A, B and C).

The letter is your block and there are four blocks in Salisbury (A, B, C and D).

Morton House


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

The letter is your block and there are six blocks in Morton (A to F).
The first number is the floor you are on (or second letter if this is a G) - so G being ground floor, 1 being first etc.
The remaining numbers are your room number on that floor.
Therefore room number DG009 is D block, Ground floor, room 9.


 
Lady Mountford House


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

The letter is your block and there are seven blocks in LMH (A to G).
The first number is the floor you are on (or second letter if this is a G) - so G being ground floor, 1 being first etc.
The remaining numbers are your room number on that floor.
Therefore room number B2011 is B block, floor 2, room 11.


 
Greenbank Student Village


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

The letter is your core. There are two cores in Derby Annex (N & P), four cores in Derby (Q to T) and one core in Rathbone (U).
The first number is the floor you are on (or second letter(s) if this is a G, M or LG) - so G being ground floor, M being mezzanine and LG being lower ground floor. The number 1 would be first floor etc.
The remaining numbers are your flat and room number on that floor.

So…
UG.503 in Rathbone is Core U, Ground Floor, Cluster flat 5, bedroom 03
