Read Burrell House Reviews
When arriving at Burrell I couldn't help but think what the f*** I had got myself into. Honestly looked like the most run down s*** tip I had ever seen in my life. However after meeting a few of the cunts who inhabited the place, getting to know them and necking countless bottles of Glens before our fat sessions in Dirty Disco I can easily say I wouldn't have chosen anywhere else to spend my first year at uni #Devsasipper
Yeah, Burrell isn't as modern as the other halls, the rooms are small and you have to share showers, BUT on the upside of this you get a great social atmosphere, the people I met in my corridor have become my friends for life, you get your meals cooked for you, the toilets and showers are kept clean, and the social spaces are cleaned. Having seen the state that your average 'flat-style' halls get into to, a 'corridor-style' is far better for the cleaner students among us! I wouldn't have changed it for the world. BIG UP BURRELL!!!
There were a small group coming back from clubbing who treated the place very badly and people in general simply didn't clean up after themselves. The situation got so bad that they shut the common room and ALL kitchens from 11PM-5AM which was extremely inconvenient considering lots of students study at night and had NO ACCESS to kitchen facilities so I often starved overnight, but great social aspects.
Burrell house doesn't look amazing, inside or out, the rooms are cozy and other halls have larger rooms, but if you want a social experience, Burrell house seems to be the place. I met second years within the first week who told me how much they missed Burrell.
Considering you get 10 meals a week even if the rooms aren't the nicest it's incredibly good value for money. Location is about a 10 minute walk from lectures and guildhall walk. Cleaners go over the common rooms every morning and there's one on each floor except the first where you can just use the kitchen instead.
