If you don't mind the 30/20 minute walk (depending on your walking speed/how late you are) then West Park Villas is really good. So much pin board space around the bed for you to personalise, double bed, enough storage (desk drawers are very spacious) and I managed to fit my cello in on its stand (though I had to keep my wardrobe door open to do so). No sofas in the kitchen which is a bit annoying but you get used to it. To me it felt cosy and I enjoyed my walk back and forth to campus- beautiful views of the river! Cheapest accommodation too. The study room and common room are good too. Staff aren't always about at the desk when you need them
Really cheap but farthest away from the uni. people here are great but kitchens are the size of a table and two stoves no room for any living, you need to go to the 1 common room shared between 160 people, so its quite busy,
Unbelievably poor quality of accommodation for 526 a month, the student experience is awful a seeing as you're 30 mins away from the rest of civilisation. Yes there's a bus but that doesn't make up for having to come back to some dark, poorly lighted 70's grandparents-style room. The shower in the bathroom is horrendous. I'm a small person and the water coming from the shower could barely cover my back so I went and bought a new fitting for it. The wet room drain will stink if you don't bleach it constantly. The radiators where tempremental and would work on their own accord (along with the hot water for the shower). The kitchen isn't a friendly place because there's nothing more uncomfortable than having to sit in a smelly kitchen on uncomfortable wooden chairs which is also poorly ventilated. if you want woken up at least three times a week between 12am-3am by fire alarms that go off for no reason then this is the place for you. Other than that, west park has nothing going for itself
1st year halls were great. Security was round the clock; laundry facilities were convenient; gas heating, double glazed windows; nearby bus stops for routes to uni or Ninewells; ethernet connectivity provide 100 Mbits internet speed!
At about £1000 cheaper than the other dundee halls west park is great value for money. Although it is about a 15/20 minute walk to uni I love it! I think the walk is a great way to wake yourself up in the morning! It's a shame the villas don't have a living room area like the flats do but other than that I think they're great, the double bed is definitely a bonus!
