(Reviewing on behalf of a flatmate) Fairly Standard accommodation with excellent facilities and location. felt close to everything and no more than a 10-minute walk to Lidl, uni, meadows, 2 minutes to the gym and a brisk 15 minutes to Waverly. Close to the pool also. Close enough to Cowgate for access but no noise and sick on the streets in the morning as is the case with accommodations actually situated on Cowgate. Really enjoyed my 8 months here and would recommend, it's perfect if it gets a common room tbh.

From what I've seen the best shared-bathroom accommodation outside of Warrender Park

All the basics done well + large rooms and excellent location. Shame there's no common room but close to city centre so no shortage of social space outwith the building

Was here last year and it was a bit substandard. I moved in to find three of my five flatmates were semester abroad students, two of which had poor social skills and spent most of their time in their rooms or at the gym/library. This was a big blow, but I was rather glad to see the back of them at christmas. Those who replaced them were lovely but again semester abroad and all americans. This seemed to be the way with darroch - they stick all the sem abroad people here and theyre mostly americans.

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.
