Far to expensive for a student I reckon, house keeping barely even clean and a lot of our things we're damaged when we moved in. The boiler always makes loads of noise, enough to keep my flat mates who don't sleep very well awake. There's a hole in my bedroom wall behind my bed.

Could be a bit cheaper considering there isn’t much of a social seating area, good location, staff are friendly, nice and quiet for those who prefer a quiet space. Much better Hall’s than Roeburn, I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it

I had to move there from Ribble Halls for a month, and honestly it was the worst. The rooms are incredibly warm, and the kitchen and the fridges very small for 6 people. Ribble was for 5 people and we got more storage. In my opinion, the flats at Douglas are not prepared for 6 people to live there. Also, we complained several times about a missing shelf in the fridge, a broken drawer of the freezer and a broken chair, and they never sorted those things out. No social spaces at all. Honestly, you can get much better accommodation paying slightly more.

Lack of social places... For me as an Erasmus exchange student was a bit expensive to live there. Overall, the building was in a very convenient location for me.

Spent 4 months in Douglas, as an exchange student. 6 people in each flat, two bathrooms (both with a toillet and a shower) and a kitchen. Social space in kitchen is rather uncomfortable (high stools), but the kitchen is pretty big with two fridges. It is managable, living in Douglas was okay, room was fine with a good wifi connection and a sink in the room, which was very convenient. I was satisfied. It is better than the cheepest Whitendale flat (4 people, one bathroom, really small kitchen). Would recommend.

Although one of the cheapest accomodations available, still extremely expensive given the fact that Douglas Hall has 6-room flats with no common area except the kitchen with a high table and uncomfortable chairs. Cleanliness depends on your roommates of course, but I was usually able to reach maintenance when needed and they were helpful. There was not much noise from outside, but the walls were very thin.

Living in the Halls has been very much convenient especially as a Masters student. The only disadvantage about living in the Halls is that it seems and feels like you are physically in university. Overall, its been a good experience - and I would recommend other people to choose Student Halls for their studies.

As an exchange student who has never lived in dorms, but instead barracks, I felt it more than adequate. It is not 5 star luxury hotel, it is instead exactly what you need. It has a kitchen, rooms showers. Better than any barrack I have lived in. The mattresses could use some attention though. After 4 months of sleep on the mattress that was provided required a chiropractic adjustment upon return home. Regardless it is a dorm not a luxury spa, it has more than enough amenities.
