For Session 2021 - 2022 - there is an approx. 50/50 split between post grads and undergrads.  The University tries where possible to allocate post grads and under grads into different blocks.

Its my first year in university of dundee, but it is not good experience. When i live in heathfield, accommodation officer check the condition of room frequently. It influence my roommates and me lives. Some of office treat us extremely badly. Also lots of my firends from other flats said they meet same situation frequently. Even one time one of accommodation officer visit their room and open the door of my friend without prior warning

I lived there in from Sep 2018- May 2019. Everything was alright except the kitchen dirtiness which I think would depend on the flatmates. But my experience was crappy, I had to tolerate sticking with dirty flatmates for many months. The online payment is extremely bad. They show you the wrong amount which is more than what you really need to pay. I had to deal with the Bank again because of that. Even if you email them about it, they won't reply you for weeks. Perhaps, they don't know how to solve that! It is a scam. GO SEARCH FOR OTHER ACCOMMODATION!!

Heathfield is very expensive and I only chose it as I had no other option. But I have managed to make the most of it. It is in a very convinient location on campus and has plenty of shops nearby.

The halls at Heathfield aren't the cheapest available but you certainly get what you pay for, on arrival everything was clean and in good condition. It is set only 2 minutes walk from the union building and is right next to the gym and some major lecture theaters.

I am absolutely shocked at the price of the rent. I've had a call from a family member worried. The added stress of worrying about having a roof over your head when your a new student is awful. I said there must be a mistake, the fee is more than my homes rent! Why so extortionate? Why the lack of funding? Concentrating on studying is the only thing that should be on his mind. Outrageous. Can someone explain this to me?

My time there was enjoyable at first and a great opportunity ti meet new friends and settle into university life. The management were very strict but i felt secure at night. Over all experience was good, size of rooms are very basic but good enough with your own toilet. The common areas are very basic but able to lock everything.

Heathfield halls have been a great place to spend my first year at Dundee University. I have made many friends while living and been able to get a feel for independent living without extra worries about electricity, heating or wifi bills. One thing I would say that would improve Heathfield would be that it would be extremely beneficial if the Heathfield car park could be opened up for the use of residents throughout term time, there is not a lot of parking available on campus and this would allow residents to not have to park elsewhere in Dundee. Overall, Heathfield has been very good and I have enjoyed staying there greatly.

very good location and good size however our fridge broke and our food went mouldy and we had to tell the management 4 times and our tap is making loud noises and they have come and checked it and agreed they need to get someone out to fix it, but haven't. this had been going on for 3 months. bed rooms are nice and beds comfy, we are meant to have a cupboard however it is locked therefore we cant use it
