Most helpful review

Decent accommodation, bedrooms good, shared facilities okay, excellent location for university sites and shopping, immediately next to most night life, common room area fairly small but okay. However it is LOUD as many rooms are either facing the courtyard (which gets noisy as many people sit there) or streets with clubs and bars on which gets very rowdy at night. But overall good accommodation, nothing fancy but in a great location (particularly for freshers)

Great place to live in first year. Really lively and close to uni, clubs and shops. The grime is endearing.

Kinciad's Court is an extremely sociable, friendly student accommodation. If you love a good flat party this is the place for you! My favourite thing about Kincaid's is the location - it's so close to everything at the university and unlike some other accommodation does not require a 30/40 min walk to get everywhere.

In comparison to other halls, you pay for what you get. Facilities are basic in the kitchen/living area, and rooms are what you would expect. Location wise, Kincaid's is fantastic. It is right on the Cowgate, which hosts numerous clubs (Cab Vol, Hive, Bongo) and bars (Three sisters, Sneaky Pete's, the Tron): ideal for a true fresher's experience. For those of you who will be using trains, it's a max. 10 minute walk from Waverley. In terms of shops, there's a Tesco Express 2 mins away on North Bridge St. Further down the road, there is a bigger Tesco Metro, and a Lidl. Plenty of places to eat on this road as well, from little cafes to KFC to the infamous Mosque Kitchen. The george square/bristo square campus is 5 mins walk. The gym is also a 5 minute walk along the Cowgate. So, to sum up, the location is the best aspect of these halls. Common room had table tennis and fooseball. I was in block 4, which was a 12 person flat. So, socially, it was great too!

Good halls, fun and perfect for self catered. Couldn't be more central being 5 minutes from the campus and 2 from the royal mile!

I enjoyed my time at Kincaid's a lot. It was just 5 minutes from my campus, and so close to Princes Street too. I loved being so central and I've made lots of great friends from halls.
