Honestly, it's too far away from anything. It's a 15 minute walk from the nearest shop. The bus the university then put on, which is only at night for the union, is also terrible and you never know how often it's running if even at all. You get absolutely no mobile network signal on my flat and therefore depend on the wifi they provide. But when that isn't working, which is happened a few times, your phone is useless while inside. For the flats there is no common space for all of us and because we are so far away it is difficult to meet people.

Before moving to west park the reviews made it appear terrible. However I found it far from it! Although basic, the rooms & kitchen areas are very clean upon arrival and of decent size too. Although it's a good 25 minute walk to campus, west park is based in the nicest area of Dundee. In the west end there are some truly amazing buildings, and you are right next to the magdalen green, as well as the botanical gardens. Also for someone like me who just loves to put in earphones and go for a good stroll, this walk is perfect! And as for the social life in my opinion it was far more exciting than that of the campus halls- it has its own little community. In fact I knew of several people who would trek all the way up here for pres! I met the most amazing people here and made memories that I'll never ever forget. I know next year I'll miss West Park and I'm so glad I spent my first year there and I urge anyone reading these reviews to know that it's really not as bad as people make it out.

Location is terrible, cba going to lectures cause it took half an hour to walk to, nearest shop is 15 min walk away absolute nightmare, hard time socialising as nobody ever came to flat parties as its so far away from campus. The wifi was the only good thing

West park flats are a nice place to spend first year, they’re cheaper that the other halls of residence but you do sacrifice location a little as they’re about a 20 minute walk from the campus

Massive money sink for not very much value given the distance away from the uni. also getting things repaired can take weeks.

If you live at West Park, be prepared to have those that live on campus look at you in disgust and don't ever expect them to come visit or come to one of your parties. Also be prepared for a 20 minute walk to uni in the morning, 30 if you're hungover. However, the social life is bangin' and always expect pre drinks to be going on somewhere. Tip: do not go to the villas, you will literally live in a dungeon. Oh, and don't ever expect a working washing machine.

It's too far away especially when doing food shopping. Nice views along Perth Road. However for the distance it is away from uni, it's way too expensive!

It's a great place to live, it's just far too far away from everything so I've probably spent the difference in rent from West Park and Belmont in taxi fairs to take me places or on nights out when you're too late for the bus.

West Park is on the outskirts of the University but it's a calm place and the morning walks aren't too bad

Lovely accommodation, but 15 minutes from campus is a bit annoying, as well as inconvenience to go shopping! Saves money on buses by walking to Ninewells on the morning (~30 mins)

Avoid living here at all costs. Too far away from everything, at least a 15 minute walk to the nearest shop. Always have to walk everywhere or get a taxi because the busses are so infrequent. The money you end up spending on various taxis everywhere you may as well have paid the extra to stay in heathfield.

It may be a 15 minute walk to class in the morning but it is worth it. Westpark is a community! Plus theres a free night bus to take you home when you're bevied
