So easy to meet friends from all floors and really find your group instead of being stuck with those in your flat. the canteen is also a great way to meet people as Rees and Burrell are connected so can go into both. The showers and shared kitchen really isn't an issue as you wont have to wait long as everyone shows and eats at different times. A 10min walk max to clubs and the uni which honestly goes by so quickly and very convienant. I will defiantly go back. It may be more expensive but you save so much more money than the other walls from cleaning to food. ((btw floor four is the best!!!!))

I was really nervous to move in to Burrell House after reading some of the reviews on it but when I actually got here I couldn't believe how nice it was. Burrell House was refurbished in 2019 and it was an amazing job - the common rooms are massive and comfortable (apart from floor 1 which is a bit smaller), and the kitchens are pretty big considering it's catered accommodation. There's no problem with shared showers - the cubicle has a door (with a lock obvs) and then a curtain beyond that so privacy in that sense is not an issue. The bedrooms are nice and give off a cosy vibe. The only issue I have is with the catered food which is sometimes not great quality, but if you don't mind ready-meal type stuff then you're absolutely fine. Overall, a really nice place to live, don't let the past reviews before it was refurbished scare you!

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.

The meals provided are of decent and regular quality, between the seafront and university is an ideal placement and the halls design aids social interaction massivley

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.
