Right next to aldi, which is very convenient. We dont pay for our own heating or electricity as someone said in another comment. It's kept pretty warm even now during winter, I have to keep the window open before going to sleep because its so warm. My room is on the side of the street, so I have to sleep with earplugs as the road is noisy. Otherwise its very quiet, only twice have i heard a party happening in another apartment, and its been 3 months. When we had issues with warm water or the bathroom door not locking, they've come to fix it during the same day. Biggest downside is the slightly off campus location, but a 10min walk to class isn't that bad.

Current resident of Andrew Ure, and I used to live in Garnett hall in Year 1. Staff is undeniably very helpful, friendly, and they are trying their best to make us feel safe and at home. They handled situations such as fire alarms ringing flawlessly, and are very supportive. However, AUH (Andrew Ure Hall) has some problems that just can't be ignored, and I believe it is the worst accommodation for your money. I am currently living here for a second semester, and so far we have made 25+ complaints for various things breaking. Some of the most notable ones include: 1. There is a year-long rat and bedbug problem, our rooms are full of traps for them. 2. The shelves above the desks collapsed for a total of 3 times in different rooms, one of the times almost breaking my fingers and laptop. 3. Creaky floors, old furniture. 4. One of my flatmates can't control the heating in their room, which means that their room is either extremely cold or extremely hot. 5.Toilets leaking 6.Oven malfunction

I would recommend private accommodation for everyone who can afford it or otherwise the slightly more expensive on campus halls. The Andrew Ure hall definitely needs to be renewed.

These halls were awful. They are very dated and rather confined, the floor creaked even if you made a slight move. It is filled with post graduate students so is not good for socializing in first year. The fact that they even put first year students in Andrew Ure is beyond me. Things kept on breaking, our extractor fan was leaking for around 6 weeks and the staff neglected to help, we then couldn't use one of our bathrooms - in a flat of 6 to all be using the same bathroom is very unhygienic! There are no couches, just blue chairs which are horrible. Our front door to enter the accommodation was broken for around a week - the handle fell off so the students in the halls had to use a bottle to keep it open, otherwise you couldn't get in. However it also meant that anyone could get access to the building which is really not safe. Very poor management and nothing was sorted out in time, it was always prolonged. AVOID AT ALL COST!

The staff are friendly and will help you if there are issues with your flat. The social experience that you have will depend on the flatmates that you are assigned. Some flats (like the one I was in) are a social desert, and others are social. This mainly comes down to the qualities in your flatmates thing that you fill out before you move in. The flats themselves are rather basic and the flat interiors in the undergraduate block haven't been refurbished so are old and dilapidated (although some were in the process of refurbishment). The rooms are small and will take time to get use to if you previously stayed in a big room. The best thing about Andrew Ure was the location as it was close shops like Aldi and Tesco and was close enough to the university. Also they offer car parking facilities although that are extortionately expensive costing £500 per year so I wouldn't recommend them.

These halls are terrible. We are located in close proximity to several loud bars open until late, the doors slam clumsily and loudly often shaking the furniture in my room, and you can hear other student's private conversations from three or four rooms away. Not only are they unfit for use as studies - they're not even fit to be used as a place to sleep at night! At any cost, look for alternative accommodations.

Settled in easily. The staff were helpful and the rooms were nice, clean and tidy. Excellent facilities and communal areas. Had big parties at the hall almost every weekend.

interior very dated if you get one of the not refurbished apartments; heating not particularly reliable; showers are horrible for anybody with a bit of standards. Fire alarms go off regularly because the steam from the showers is taken as smoke

far too old, in dire need of refurbishment. A deep clean was supposed to have been done before we moved in but that wasn't the case, shelves were still dirty and had food on them. Because we pay for our own gas and electricity we can't afford to keep the heating on much so it gets damp and mouldy. Full of postgraduates so not ideal for British undergraduates and not ideal for people who like to socialise and meet others. However it is in a good location in the city centre next to Aldi.
