The good: - Good living room space, nice social atmosphere, Hillhead has good services close it, close to campus, large bed The bad: - Overpriced, limited utilities, bad construction work (wall to wall carpet moldy, everything can be heard thru the walls), service takes days to arrive, extremely cold during winter (heating dependent on a single small electric radiator), constant fire alarms (overly sensitive and residents routinely activate them to alleviate boredom), lack of storage space

(3) But if it still gets too cool for your taste, each room sports a compact heater with a futuristic touch switch that even shuts off by itself when it deems it warm enough! At New Carnegie Court friends are always just a few walls away! With over 100 flats you are bound to find at least a few friends. And if you’re thirsting for someone to make you feel better about your general person, never fear, at New Carnegie Court you will always be able to come out into the courtyard on a monday morning to see the broken glass bottles and trash left outside by people who claim to be functioning adults. You can have all this and more for just £610 a month! (That is £3050 a month for you and your flatmates combined! Only £27 450 all together for the entire school year!)

(2)But that’s not all! The kitchen/living room combo ensures a little bit of danger, as the plugs regularly crackle and the microwave overheats, and for the ultimate thrill it might take days for anyone to come and check it out! (if they even come at all, you never know at New Carnegie Court!) Ovens breaking and sinks spewing out boiling water are just a few of the thrills this dream flat sports! Since the living room and kitchen is combined, you’ll be glad to hear that any germs and little creatures living in the carpet will be well fed, as you will more often than not be eating on the couch or on the part of the counter that is over carpet. The building itself was built at some point in the later part of the 1900s, probably. It is a modern building that likes to bring the outside to the inside; thus it is cool and breezy in the winter, and warm and toasty in the summer, perfect for the outdoor lover in us all!

(1)The University of Aberdeen in collaboration with Hillhead Halls are proud to present: New Carnegie Court! At New Carnegie Court we dedicate ourselves to teach valuable life lessons to our residents, which is why we make sure to have as little storage space as possible, to make sure our residents learn that it is always best to travel light. On top of that we boast minimalist ensuite bathrooms with a cosy little shower perfect for one. And if you miss having long luxurious baths like back home, never fear, the showers regularly clogg just so you can have that little bit of fun splashing around as you get clean, while also reminding you to help the environment by keeping your showers short, lest your entire bathroom floods!

You are basically guaranteeing normal and kind flat mates with the price of these halls, the flat parties are huge and are renowned over bullhead. Down side is the money but the other halls are either far too cramped (hector Boyce/grant court /South house have rooms hard to move in and one fridge per flat) or are extremely unsociable (Adam smith/wavell/fyfe due to their hall lay out it's extremely hard to get the bonds you make with flat mates).

Incredibly overpriced and the flats are tiny for what you pay for. It's so cut off from the city centre as well with only one bus going from Hillhead.

Rooms are nice and beds are fairly comfy, however the wifi is meh and it's a good 20 minute walk to the university.

The price is ridiculously expensive but all in all the rooms are nice and clean. Own bathroom is quite nice and 3/4 sized beds are awesome (expect you might want to purchase a mattress topper since the matresses are quite hard). Common areas and kitchen are the best you can find in the whole Hillhead. This halls is where all the biggest flat parties happen so prepare for that with some earplugs if you wish to sleep. I am satisfied with the place but it could be cheaper.

Expensive, small room for the price, uncomfy three quarter bed, charge you for any misdemeanours, for 142/wk you could get so much more in the centre of town 4/10

rooms are perfect with queen size beds, mattresses uncomfortable, en-suite is perfect, kitchen however is another story, the hob barely works, the oven barely works and there are no cleaners. It all depends who you have as your flat mates

There is better kitchens in the cheaper accommodation such as grant court. The only positive was that it is the only accommodation at Aberdeen Uni with ensuite bathrooms. Not worth the £618 a month at all.
