Welcome to Cripps
Welcome to Cripps! Cripps is one of the 12 catered halls on University Park and is situated at the top of Cripps Hill so is just a short walk away from most central campus buildings.
The hall is comprised of 18 blocks, each accommodating roughly between 15- 25 students. The blocks surround immaculately kept grass quads, making it one of the most scenic halls on campus! Most of the rooms in Cripps are single study but the hall boasts some of the most spacious bedrooms found in any university accommodation.
