4 downfalls: If you live on the bottom floor it's a bit annoying because you have a frosted window so can't look out. The interior isn't as fancy as some other halls. You have to go to another accommodation to use their common room. Laundry facilities a tad expensive (but so is all the other accommodation) Everything else: amazing. One of the cheaper university accommodation but you get alot for it! The bedrooms are such a decent size. In a flat of 4 people you'll have a shower room with a toilet and another toilet room. All of the staff, cleaners and RAs are lovely - if you have a problem they'll sort it out. It's a very good location. Wifi is brilliant. would recommend

Q
Hi I'm moving to East Newington Place in August. I'd like to know if it's just a Halls for Postgrad, if you're doing a postgrad there will your other flatmates also be postgrad students? Is the shower good? I stayed over at a different Ed Uni halls and the shower was just awful and really hard to use! Is this a normal one? Also.. is there a toaster or full-length mirror? Thanks!

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at East Newington Place, even if it was cut short by the pandemic. The location was nice and quiet but was still close enough to local cafes, the meadows etc for social opportunities. Unfortunately, we didn't have access to any of the other accommodations' common rooms because of the pandemic however, the RAs were able to arrange many COVID safe online events. It's located close to multiple other accommodations so I'd assume social opportunities wouldn't be a problem in a regular year. George Square campus is about 10-15 mins away on foot and a lovely walk in the summer. My only complaint is that you can hear anyone talking outside and in the stairwells, even if the doors and windows are shut. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a quieter option for their accommodation.

Positive: Flats of four, shower room and bathroom, good internet, quiet location, cheap for Edinburgh, spacious bedroom storage, nice kitchens, weekly cleaner, building 6 is all for PGDE teachers and student vets. Negatives: has had an ongoing mouse problem for years that they try to blame on whoever moves in next, only two washing machines for three buildings of students (both of which are constantly breaking), you're charged if you forget your keys one day, no common room, building 6 has red-ish carpet and curtains that aren't very nice looking.

Excellent location, 10 mins from Uni, 25 mins from main shopping and clubs. Such good value for money, very friendly as it is so small. No common room, which makes socialising within the halls difficult, and not much social life, so you have to make extra effort! But overall, really really enjoyed it!
