Too expensive for what you get. Flats are old, floors are creaky and walls are made of paper - you can hear what people do three flats next to and above you at any time of the day. Every piece of furniture and electrical appliances is useless. There you can find the worst type of shower ever invented and the most privacy-violating layout of windows. The terrible location is just a detail compared to everything else.. Oh, and you might get visits from mice every now and then, and the people at the central building are too focused on their events to believe that you have a problem. Once you get there you realize that they just want to make money by taking advantage of the fact that first year students cannot easily find other places and are willing to pay 450£ for a flat that does not look like the pictures that they put on the website (which you shouldn't trust, believe me).
Terrible location in the middle of the countryside with only a Lidl for company. Incredibly expensive, and only the priciest flats have living rooms. My room was one of the cheaper ones and it was £120 per week. Cleaners never came into the flats either. Hall management was a combination of lovely chaps and a few weirdos who'd treat you like children and kick you out of your friend's kitchen past 11pm. Also, no mixed gender flats and they don't try to mix you with people you'll like, which I hear is standard for unis. Visited a friend at Glasgow Strathclyde and his halls were city centre, had the option of flats for smokers, came with living rooms and TVs, and even asked you what kind of person you'd like as a flatmate, all for £99 a week. Aberdeen is a joke.
Grotty, dark, waste of money. No matter how hard we cleaned, the kitchen was still stained. All the furniture was dark and creaked. Small rooms, too small kitchen, too few chairs for the number of residents in the flat. Don't live here...
