Read North Court Reviews
Although North Court is one of the less expensive halls you can find, it seems still quite expensive for what it is. There is no living room or any sofa to feel home and socialise in the common area, which is just a cold kitchen. However, it is very clean and safe. Lidl is close and it feels good to live in the middle of the nature of Seaton Park. The laundry is very expensive and not very effective.
As the whole Hillhead, it's far from any shop or shopping centre. This structure is probably the oldest in Hillhead, and you can see in the windows, the frige not working, the cupboards consumed... However these flats are pretty big and the place not too noisy. And you can often spots dears or foxes outside the window.
North court is pretty cheap. It's not expensive but then you pay for what you get. It's in the back corner of hillhead so not near the central 'buzz'. Most of the block are foreign students and some are only there till Christmas so you will have to say goodbye to a flat mate potentially, which is sad. There's no sofa area in the kitchen which is what I'd say it is missing the most. The sinks in the bedrooms are really useful however and there is nothing wrong with the bathrooms, although they were quite dirty when we arrived. Sometimes I feel it would be better to be closer to all the parties etc as not many occur in north court. But the lay out if my room is good and my flat mates are lovely.
A bit disappointed about the quality of the flat compared to how much we pay for it. Our rooms and the kitchen are spacious which is good. Right next to the river, so it's more quite than many of the other student accommodations (good if you need sleep!). No common room apart from kitchen. Can still recommend it!
It's the least expensive uni accommodation if you want to live in a flat. Spacious rooms with a sink (which I found great), quite a large kitchen and two bathrooms. Had no issues whatsoever sharing the space. Location is in the outer part of Hillhead which means that noise from the other houses doesn't come through and people always posted in the FB group before they had a flatparty so you got a fair warning (and let’s face it earplugs are both cheap and great if you don't fancy the noise). We didn't have any cleaners so that was up to you and your flatmates, but as soon as you had an issue with something not working properly, the porters fixed it quickly. The only social space is the kitchen but that worked great. I made lots of friends and just because you're living in one house doesn't mean that you can't meet and go to other peoples flats. I never had an issue with the wifi, I could stream movies and music (netflix and spotify) without any problems. I do recommend living here.
