After a few days staying at Fraser Studios in Aberdeen I am convinced that it was the right choice! The apartments are really nice layout and its very comfortable to have an on-site bathroom as well as kitchen. In this way one can keep privacy - the social spaces, however, also help to connect with others. The atmosphere is really great, everyone is super helpful and friendly. I was welcomed very warmly, not only by the staff members but also by the other students! We catched up quite fast although some live here for a longer time already. Everyone is willing to help to get used to live in another city/country. The application process was very easy, too. Every question was answered very promptly so that my choice to stay at Fraser Studios was made very fast. I can recommend to live here as it makes studying in Aberdeen very comfortable!

Q
Is it a good social environment? I'll be moving to Uni myself and it'll be important for me to meet some people of course.

Hi There, we unfortunately dont have a gym on-site, however we do offer a membership to the Aberdeen Sports Village as part of our tenancies. ASV is an excellent facility in easy walking distance, has a full gym, swimming pool and athletics track as well as much more! So even better!

The team here has been absolutely welcoming and helpful, especially during the covid-19 lockdown. They are always willing to help with whatever issues we might have and always go out of their way to make sure we have virtual social events and activities to help us pass our time during the lockdown. Special shout-out to Phil!

I moved into Frasers over a month and a bit ago and I have been more than pleased with my choice of accommodation. The facilities are fantastic, the fact we get the gym membership with ASV its amazing (10 min walk from Frasers). The rooms are great, much bigger than I was expecting, only negative is there are only 6 power sockets (extension cards fix everything though). Finally, the staff are so friendly and are super helpful, Phil in particular he is amazing and is always helping and great for a chat. He's pretty cool!

I lived here for my final year. Really like the property. The rooms are spacious. The location is perfect; central to all the gyms, Aberdeen University, as well as the city centre. Personally I find it nice and quiet, which is what I wanted for a studio apartment. All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful! Couldn't really ask for a better team. Any issues you might have are more or less resolved quickly .Very happy with my stay here.

I lived there from 2018 until 2020. It is absolutely brilliant to live there. There is a bus stop nearby, Chinese restaurant nearby, Lidl supermarket is literally just 5 minutes walk, if you want more choice for shopping, then 10 minutes walk to Morrisons. 20 minutes walk to city centre is straight forward, you will not get lost. Room is very clean and posh. It looked like it was designed for easy daily maintenance which is great. However, the downside of living there is the noise disturbance usually happens on the 2nd floor to the 4th floor. (The higher you go, the less noise disturbance). DO NOTE, that vacuum cleaner will regularly disappear by some irresponsible individual. MAKE SURE to join the Fraser Studio's WHATSAPP to keep yourself updated. The social space is just meh, you will eventually use it for study rather than hanging out. The receptionist is super friendly and super helpful. You can trust them with your heart! That is all I can say with 2 years experience.

Thanks for a great review! We appreciate the hoovers go missing from time to time, some people really like to keep hold of them! We are looking to remedy this so their is always one when you need it. Unfortunately people are sometimes a little noisy, but if it becomes unbearable dont be afraid to send us an email or pop and have a word, we can be very discreet in dealing with this sort of thing, and can often resolve things amicably.

I decided to stay at Fraser Studios based on the recommendation from a friend who had stayed here. I’ve enjoyed my stay and the experience has been seamless. The staff have been very helpful from the time I made enquiries till now. The location is great as well because it is central and easily accessible to key areas in the city, it also helps that there are bus stops close by. I really like that my parcels and packages get received for me even in my absence. The staff and management have been thoughtful and caring through out the lockdown period by sending updates and even a care package. If you’re thinking of signing up to stay at Fraser Studios, you’re on the right path, just sign up.

Moving to a new country for the first time is absolutely difficult especially with having a short period of getting the acceptance letter and booking accommodation. Even before arrival the staff were beyond helpful and patient (it took a while for me with documents etc). The staff (especially Phil absolute sweetheart!) have been nothing but lovely throughout the year. From just having a chat when it was difficult to make friends and being understanding which is something I absolutely value. Being away from home the first time they made my family at ease knowing I was staying at an accommodation with my own space and so close to places I might need to be. Although there are a few bits and bobs that need tightened such as the doors not locking at times. When you do email them they respond quite quickly and help out- especially Joe who is absolutely a great to talk to! I’ve been able to make memories thanks to events hosted by Fraser and I will be staying next year!

Hi! Thanks for the kind words!!

The door issue has been resolved, all safe and secure now! We completely understand the concerns people have about being away from home, and as is often the case with a lot of people staying with us, in a whole new country. I'm glad we could help you settle in!

I choose to move into Fraser Studios in October of 2019 (after the semester had already started) due to issues with my landlord. When I initially emailed Fraser Studios the team were a fantastic help, replying quickly and answering all of my questions (there were a lot of them!). They also understood that Fraser Studios wasn't my only option, so held a space for me for a few days while I evaluated other options. Eventually I decided on Fraser Studios, after a fantastic tour from Phil, who was ever patient with me during the whole process. The team at Fraser Studios are friendly, kind, understanding and always willing to do a little extra to help you when you need it. They plan fantastic events (such as the get to know you night) and do extra little things that just make you smile (having scottish themed snacks at the desk for Robert Burns Night). If you are looking for a home, where the people who look after the building see you more as just tennants, choose Fraser Studios.

Covid-19: During the COVID-19 outbreak, Fraser Studios have made a special effort to keep those of us still living here informed of the current situation. We have recieved regular emails of what is going on. We recieved a small tote bag which included items such as a roll of toilet paper. These little things have really helped during this time.

Has been nothing but an excellent experience living at Fraser studios. Friendly staff that are happy to chat or help in anyway that they can. Are very accommodating regarding rent payments to line up with student loan and SAAS. 5/5!

Covid-19: They have been supportive for people who have left as well as those that remained. Have provided support bags with essentials for everyone which was a nice surprise.

Living here has been great, its no more expensive than living in a flat but there's the added bonus of dedicated study spaces and common areas like a cinema room. The staff are also super lovely and always make time to have a chat with you.

Covid-19: There have been emails from staff checking on students staying in the building as well as a partial rent refund for those who were forced/ able to return home.

Honestly, it is my home away from home. First and foremost, it's only 13 minutes walk from the University of Aberdeen. Second, the team is extremely friendly and ready to help at any time. If you have any problem in your room, it will be sorted as soon as possible. The studio is spacious and perfect for a student. Also, it is a very luxury student experience if you fancy living in a contemporary establishment. It occupies a unique location. It is only a few minutes walk from everything you need; 5 minutes walk from Lidl and coop where you can do your grocery. Personally, my favourite part is that it's only around 7 minutes walk from PureGym. Fraser Studios is literally across the street from the major bus stops where you can take the bus from/to any destination, and most importantly the jet bus from/to the airport, in this case, you won’t need to carry your luggage for distances to catch the bus. Finally, security is guaranteed, all doors and gates work through key fobs.

Covid-19: Common areas will now be closed to help and support social distancing, and one person at a time in the laundry room, no guests are allowed in, and though the reception hours were reduced, the team is very responsive to emails and can contact them for any maintenance or issue at any time.

I have loved living in Fraser Studios over the last year. It’s a very friendly and relaxed place to live with only a 10 minute walk into Aberdeen Uni campus. My room was spacious with everything I needed, tonnes of storage space and I was able to make it really homely! The facilities in Fraser Studios are also really great, with Washers and Dryers on sight to communal areas with table tennis and a movie room. There are also quite a few study areas too which are great. The staff are very lovely, always there for a chat and are always happy to help with any issue you may have!

Covid-19: The accommodation have been great, they offered a refund for the rest of duration of the contract. They also have been into the rooms every week to check that there are no issues whilst residents are not in the rooms.

I've lived in FS for two years - and it has been excellent accommodation. The property staff are all lovely and ready to chat at all points of the day. The rooms are a gorgeous wee space - with plenty of shelving and storage space. It initially seems quite expensive but when I booked my room, I found it to be the cheapest on the market for what was offered and you're entitled to free gym membership at ASV! There are plenty of social rooms to hang out with other people too - although I think I would have liked a few more social events to include everyone in the building (perhaps Covid-19 impacted that ability?). I would really recommend living here - and it isn't far to walk at all for Aberdeen Uni or the College (albeit there is a slight hill).

Covid-19: They were relatively consistent with their emails and updates on the situation, so that was incredible helpful. I just wish there had been more opportunities for reimbursement or cash back on our rent considering that half the amenities were out of service and so we were not having the full experience of what was paid for. But I suppose that's less their fault than the overarching company and they did their best where they could!

We would like to do more social activities, we definitely have the spaces for it, sadly the current situation has hampered that slightly but we are looking at ways to get everyone involved a little more virtually! As ever any suggestions are absolutely welcome, its your space and your good time so definitely tell us what you would like to do!
