Good Bits: Brilliant flat mates, Large green space. Not so good bits: Inadequate social space. Bottom half and upper half use two separate kitchens which segregates residents into two social groups. Lack of privacy for ground floor resident Conclusion: If you are considering westwood because of value, go for Eastwood for a similar quality but better social experience

I don't think that I'm really getting what I'm paying for with this accommodation. Tiny rooms, the small kitchen and the poor social area is just scratching the surface of the problems with it. Considering we're only paying £200 less than one of the 'premium' accommodations I think we should be getting a lot more for our money. We keep getting endless threats of fines by security for any issue under the sun, our wifi always drops out and another huge problem is the sound proofing of the rooms. In my room I can hear everything when people go to the toilet (I'm in the room below), slamming of doors and shouting at ungodly hours all sound like they're right next to my ear when I'm trying to work or sleep. The cleaners do a very good job but always come towards the end of the weekend so naturally it's filthy again by Monday. Its positing in the uni is one of the best in my opinion, we're near to all of the lecture halls and one of the closest to the shop and SU. Save money with Eastwood.

Despite not being the most glam halls (and looking slightly like a prison), I love my halls because it's so social and conveniently placed. We have 3 kitchens between 21 of us, so there's enough room to cook and store all our stuff as well as there always being people around to chat with or go out with.

Westwood is a friendly and welcoming hall. The staff are always quick to respond and sort out any problems, and it's less than a five minute walk to the Parade. What's nice about Westwood is that everyone is in a community and all the floors intermingle and welcome each other to their flat. You have a good sized room, good furniture, two big pin boards and a whiteboard to write everything you need to remember down. You have 4 toilets and 5 showers per flat of around 20 people. Whilst this may not sound like enough, I've never had a problem trying to use either one. There are also three kitchens per flat with big cupboards, two big tables (at which we all socialise), and cooker, fridge, kettle and microwave are all pretty good. The wifi connection is excellent, whereas in some accomodations I sometimes struggle to find connection, Westwood has been perfect.

Best halls if you want to be with a lot of people and enjoy socialising and going out. Someone in my flat went out pretty much every night so there's always something to do

Did not feel at home here, found the way that the flat was run and cleaned very poor, not worth the high rent at all. Wifi was ok though. I guess it's good for pre drinks parties that's it

Great place to live. So close to the lectures and fresh. And partying is good but it's quiet in the day so you can do work. Big rooms. Only problem is kitchens are quite small. All the people are nice. No snobs like quads.

Kitchen is very awkwardly arranged for social space. Cleaners do not really do a good job. Wifi isn't great. Social life is pretty good but that's the people for you, not the accomodation.

The social areas are lacking in comparison to other halls (Quads and others), as there is no designated common room. People pretty much just hung around in the kitchen and that became our social area... but tbh i wouldn't worry much I had so much fun and didn't ever feel like the social experience was lacking. Cleaning was decent, sometimes the bins got a bit full and nearly overflowed but that never bothered me much.` I thought the fact that there would be no en-suites would be a downside, but it wasn't that bad in all honesty, and I almost never meet people in the toilet areas. Also there are sinks in your room (boys).

The rooms are very clean and have plenty of storage. Loads of sockets in rooms. The showers are clean and have good water pressure. Lack of communal space is an issue for being social within the flat.

Large rooms, no social space though - just kitchens. Best value for money if you don't want an en-suite and located close to everything except the STV. Very social halls, with lots of people per "flat" (17 in mine).

although the housing is basic( resembles prison cells in liberal countries; which are arguably better), it creates an atmosphere for social inteRaction between flat mates, forming new relationships (literally) and potentially ever lasting friendships.
