Horrendous. Such an incredible ripoff. About as well built as a cardboard box and the issues that arise as a result of this never get resolved. There is not a single person associated with this building who gives a single toss about the people who live in it. If you’re unlucky enough to live here next year or at any time in the future then expect leaks through your roof, an abundance of mould, visible and audible rats and frequent fires in the bin room due to it so rarely being emptied. To top it off, you can barely even keep yourself clean due to there only being TWO washing machines for over 150 people. This place stinks and so does everyone who lives in it. AVOID.

I've lived at Potterrow for two years now and it has been a great experience. Highlights are definitely the location which is absolutely amazing, living right next to the main University campus with the rest of the city within walking distance. Grocery stores and pharmacies are very close by as well as great restaurants and several coffee shops. The property management is amazing, the managers are really friendly and very helpful with any problems. You feel really welcome at the property and it's great to have that safety net of knowing that there is someone on site to talk to if it's needed. The social spaces are great with a big common room and study spaces. If you want to rebook for another year it's really easy and you can ensure that you get the same room again which was really nice. Living here has definitely been a highlight of my uni experience.
