Best times to be had at Robert Bryson Halls. AMAZING building when I stayed there as a fresher. Room 343 will always be close to my heart. The layout of this building is very open so you can meet with friends in different parts of the building easily. Most of the time everyone hangs out in the corridors and each others kitchens. Its common for people to leave there doors open while they are in. The halls have a super friendly environment. These halls are old! The windows are very dirty and the showers have bad pressure. Beds aren't great either. This was not an issue as every night was a sesh night and soon you got used to prison, I mean halls, conditions. If you are a fresher going to Heriot-Watt you need to stay here before they demolish it. This hall is known as the PARTY HALL and for good reason! !!ROBERT BRYSON FOR LIFE!!

The halls are quite difficult to socialise in because there is only one lounge for 4 floors. Autolocking doors means that students are frequently locked out of rooms, and after three times it results in a fine from the wardens (who threaten fines quite a lot). There was loads of mould in my bathroom when I arrived and the water pressure in the shower was pretty poor. There are lots of good things and bad things about living in halls, although RB is probably below par, I'd still live there if I was to do first year again.

Close to lectures and the layout (not in flats) makes it very sociable and easy to make friends as a fresher!
