Read Pollock Halls Reviews
Very expensive halls for what you recieve, paying for the meals and a lot of the time they weren't nice so id have to go out and pay more money for a dinner. 3 or 4 times at least the boiler broke down for days and stuck with no hot water for showers in mornings and took ages for it to be rectified. Would definitely of chose different halls if I was to do it again.
Pollock halls was fine, the resident managers and cleaners were all lovely and friendly. The rooms are a fairly good size and in good condition. However, I wasn't a big fan of the food - wouldn't recommend unless you really don't want to cook for yourself! Also being corridors of rooms rather than a flat I found it much harder to meet people, the main time you would meet people is at 'predrinks' before going out. And even then with a house of 200 people, to begin with I rarely net the same people twice. You have to be a very confident, outgoing person to really enjoy it I think. As i'm a fairly shy person, I found it quite tricky. Also I'm not a massive fan of going out clubbing all the time, but felt obliged as it was the main way to meet people, and in turn ended up meeting people with less similar interests. In the end I found my main group of friends through my course. For anyone who is shy, or is nervous about making friends go for a flat over halls! Much less daunting to begin.
