amaze best hall experience in4 yrs
Ahhhhh Melville, by far the best hall on campus. Our stunning concrete block looks far better on the inside and houses our close nit community of Melvillites. Most rooms have a sink and are laid out in blocks of 8, each with 2 toilets and 2 showers. Each room has 2 windows and 7 walls, giving them a quirky feel and loads of storage spaces! The hall has 2 quite study rooms with great views of the town, a computer room with a very handy printer, a library, a pond (compete with a swan called Ron), a couple of utility rooms with ironing boards, a laundry room, an excellent dinning room with so many different food options, three kitchens that are usually empty except on Saturday and Sunday nights and three common rooms. The upper common room is only really used for weekly wine and cheese events, the middle common room has a vending machine, ping pong table, pool table and is the site of the hall free bars. The lower common room has a tv and can be booked for movie marathons ect.
Couldn't care less - I wasn't in halls long.
All concrete and glass, designed by James Sterling. Good location for me, excellent atmosphere, but not luxurious. However, it's relatively cheap, so good value considering it is catered on weekdays.
Brilliant hall community and the cleaner were efficient and always friendly. However, the catering staff was often unnecessarily rude and the food was of poor quality
Melville is a strange looking building but residents are proud to live there. This hall is the best value for money, no question as the cheapest catered hall! The food has improved dramatically over the last year, lectures are 5 minutes away, the gym is just outside, wifi is impeccable and everyone within the community is extremely happy and well cared for.
Once you get over the fact that it's not the prettiest of halls, you start to love it. Great hall spirit, good value for money considering it's catered, and big rooms that are cleaned regularly. Kitchens could be better (boilers don't always work, hobs take an age to cook anything, and they get locked at 11pm) and the Lower Common Room is a bit grim, but apart from that, my experience of living in Andrews Melville was good.
It may be ugly as anything and cold as all buggery but Melville has an amazing community, brilliant staff and is ideally situated for science students. Also it's de-facto the cheapest catered hall in the university.
Just absolutely incredible and the best people ever
The community in Melville is nothing I've ever come across before. Walking/cycling into town is not too bad, and it is just next to the science buildings and the sports centre.
Best hall in St Andrews easily.
Best introduction to university I could have wished for. The architecture is not grant, but the people you meet, the closely-knit friendship groups and the common spaces make a huge difference.
Really great community atmosphere and cozy rooms. I was disappointed when I got Melville, but by the end of the year I couldn't have been more thankful that it's where I ended up. Great people generally and lots of communal space. It's not as "pretty" as Sallies, but you learn to love it. Fun events and even the walk into town isn't that bad. Perfect location for science students and really close to the sports centre. I was worried about the shared showers before I moved in but it worked out fine and there was never any queuing to use it. Nice study rooms and computer room that are open 24 hours. Food wasn't great but do any catered halls really have good food?
Building is dated but soon to be refurbished. Rooms are warm and excellent value for money. Rooms are cleaned for you. Various social events. Sufficient facilities.
Loved every minute of living in Melville. The community atmosphere is fantastic for 1st year. Really means you make instant friends and stay friends!
Looks pretty ugly from the outside but it grows on you fast. Great atmosphere and I managed to get my room looking pretty nice. There's lots of hot water and I've never had to queue for a toilet or shower.
I love Andrew Melville Hall so much! Many people underestimate this place, even I did before I even got here. But I simply fell in love! Great social life, great staff, simply great...except for the food, that isnt the best.
The cheapest Hall with the best social scene! And there's free pool in the common room!
This place was amazing the wardens were great food was ok. Rooms were a good size. And the cleaners were amazing and so friendly. We made friends here that will last a life time.
