Wondering what your new room number means? Look no further... we have the information to explain all!
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!).
A1.303 is Block 1, Core A, Floor 1, Cluster flat 3, bedroom 03
DG.105 is Block 2, Core D, Ground Floor, Cluster flat 1, bedroom 05
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.
A132 is Block A, Floor 1, Flat 3, bedroom 2
D021 is Block D, Ground Floor, Flat 2, bedroom 1
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.
A3059 is A block, 3rd floor, room 59
CGM014 is C block, Mezzanine floor, room 14
