There has been some issues with our flat and considering we pay £139 a week, they should be resolved a lot quicker. Buzzers, cupboard doors and toilets have been broken and hot water to the bathroom sinks is very slow. I've waited up to 5 minutes just for the hot tap to get slightly warm! However, location is perfect as you're 5 minutes from the city centre and 15 minutes from the University of Aberdeen.

Location is amazing, right in the city centre but not too noisy. The best halls to stay for first years looking to make friends and super affordable and modern inside. Social experience is exactly what i was expecting, also have a common area. Staff are friendly at reception and willing to help with any queries or problems. Feel very safe as staff there 24/7 and easy to get hold of if you need them

My daughter was treated appallingly during her time in these halls. She was specifically told that the room she was moving into was a quiet room with no issues, as she was studying for her finals. It transpired that the person in the neighbouring room had severe issues, including endless violent arguments with her partner. The police had had to be called several times to deal with her, in particular when she threatened her partner with a knife. My daughter only discovered about these problems when she moved in. She was repeatedly disturbed by very loud music late at night and by loud arguments coming from this neighbour's room. She phoned the hall's emergency number repeatedly but no action was taken. Frequently the emergency number was not answered at all. When it was, the only advice she was given was to call the police herself. The management of this hall is a disgrace. That my daughter was able to complete her finals successfully given her living conditions is amazing.

I stayed here for a short stay whilst on placement for University. The rooms are cosy and everything you need, but the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything next door. I was not a fan of the communal bathroom. The shower was very mouldy and as it was just a cupboard with a shower curtain the water went everywhere. The kitchen is very spacious with lots of storage space and plenty of room for having friends over. The two things I hated most was the key cards not working half the time so constantly having to go to reception to get them to reset and also the nightmare of using the unite student app for laundry. The app never updates and kept telling me I had to check in pretty much every other day. It took forever and also there were only three working washing machines which were a pain. The wifi and the location were perfect but for me and I guess for £85 a week - I got what I paid for.

Shockingly bad company , arrived in my room to find it needed cleaning myself , wish I could attach photos of the dirt that came off both my floor and the kitchen floor , completely unacceptable! Also after being in this flat for a couple days I was talking more to my flatmates to discover that although I was paying £137 a week , the rest were paying just £100 a week ! Not sure how this was fair or worked out , complained to reception who confirmed my room rate would be changed to match the rest of my flatmates ! But this was more lies , the only way the room would ever cost £100 is when a replacement tenant takes the room over , again , not sure how that’s fair despite having verbal and email confirmations of the change ... Managed to get over all this however and a week later changed university and no longer required the room , understandably in contract I still had to pay for the room , however I was assured at check out both the company and myself could look for replacement tennant

Spring gardens is right in amongst the city centre and is the perfect location for students wishing to enjoy the nearby city centre and/or nightlife. The building has recently been refurbished and has security working around the property 24/7.

Stayed here as a fresher medical student. Really good social scene at spring gardens and brilliant for going out. Think everything is quite modern, again it's not a five star hotel but really have enjoyed living here. Wifi in my room was meh, but that often meant i would go to the library to study as it was a better place to study anyway and only a 15 minute walk. Really would recommend living here, the kitchen is massive and if you push the couches together, it's a spare double bed for anyone staying over.

I do not recommend at all. Very heavy doors closing WILL wake you up as they slam. You will NOT be able to sleep. Walls are paper thin. Music from mobile phone heard clearly through walls, pillow talking heard easily through walls aswell. If you put in a noise complaint maybe the RAs will respond every third or fourth time, maybe. You must wait until your neighbours sleep or you will be woken up by them throughout the night. The rooms get incredibly dusty (more so than any normal room ever would). The rooms are tiny (maybe 6-7 foot wide? and then like 4 or 5 steps long MAX). Bed uncomfy. Shower is terrible and weak. Wind causes fittings in room to rattle on top floors. If you are a first year, go for it, its terrible and theres better options but w.e. If you are a 3rd or 4th year absolutely DO NOT COME HERE. Terrible student accom. Wifi is ok, it drops off a lot but its decent speed. Location is pretty decent but you will constantly hear sirens and engines on road. Thats about it.

Internet keeps dropping, shower barely has any pressure, the decor has a prison feel to it, you can hear every single door opening and closing in the entire flat. Overall a terrible experience I do not recommend at all.

Big ingested the day we arrived. In city centre which is great but beds needed replacing and the whole complex needed to be modernised.
