Amazing Experience! Ratcliffe Terrace was recently converted from postgraduate to undergraduate accommodation. This means the rooms were much bigger than the other student accommodation. There are 2 bathrooms on each floor of the house – one with a shower and the other with a bath/shower. There is a communal area and kitchen on the ground floor (plus an extra w/c) and 6 rooms downstairs. The remaining 8 rooms are upstairs. I lived in the 14-person flat which was great for social gatherings. The only downside of the accommodation was that there was only really one communal area is the available for the whole set of flats. The accommodation is about a 15/20-minute walk from George Square Library and the central University of Edinburgh buildings as well as Kings buildings. The overall atmosphere of Ratcliffe Terrace was friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to others!

I didn't like living at iQ at all. No social atmosphere whatsoever - everyone here was in a range of year groups and unis, so the people we lived next to didn't want to socialise or make friends as they'd already made theirs. As freshers me and my flatmates really missed out on making a good crowd of iQ people because of this. Don't come here if you're a fresher. If like me you are allocated here and don't get your choice - do what you can to move out, your social life will thank you for it. Restrictions all around, shocking internet for most of the year and it actually looks like a prison on the inside. Glad to be out of iQ, good riddance.
