Darroch Court is pretty good on the whole, location is excellent - right next to the gym and about a 5-10 min walk to the shops and 10 mins from campus. Rooms are spacious and generally well lit, and the small double bed is pretty comfy. Each flat is cleaned at least twice a fortnight, although sometimes it's more. Socially it's very good - loads of parties, however there isn't a common room which is a bit of a downer.

1. Central location (2 min walk to Pleasance gym, 5 walk to Cowgate, 10 min walk to Nicholson street, 10-15 min walk to George Square) 2. Nice rooms, 2 showers, 3 toilets, good kitchen facilities, cleaning common area twice a week 3. Five person flat, social mainly with 1-2 other flats, but common room being built. Residence assistants organised first night pizza social and BBQ social, good way to meet other Darroch people 4. Fast and effective repairs (within the week, and sometimes same day) 5. Helpful Residence Assistance (office hours every weekday, helped set up academic timetable, answered questions) 6. Good for studying, no significant disturbing noise 7. Design not as modern as other flats (e.g. Beaverbank/Deaconess) Considered Sciennes as well but happy living at Darroch. Improvement suggestion: more Darroch socials involving food/drink such as pizza night/BBQ. However, RAs do a good job and my impression is that Darroch has at least as many socials as other halls.
