Seemed very good for how much it cost, it’s fairly easy to get to the uni, around a 10-15 minute walk, or you can cycle for free on a nextbike (if there’s one available of course). The cleaning seemed fine, but as it was lockdown they didn’t come for the 2nd half of the year, which was understandable considering the circumstances. The social spaces were okay, the sofas and kitchen appliances weren’t particularly amazing or anything but it was fine. I can’t say all too much about the social experience as it was covid times so there wasn’t a great deal of socialising, that and the fact I’m a hermit :) The WiFi seemed to be fine, it did break a couple times throughout the year but after reporting it accommodation fixed it very well. If you’re a computer geek, you get anywhere from 50-200mbps, usually you don’t get the full 200 until around 3am onward when noones online lol
Okay so, i lived in Alexander court standard flats. Its not the worst but definitely not the best. It is quite a walk from the accommodation to the union and atrium buildings. Alexander court townhouses are exceptionally better, but more expensive. If you don't mind a long walk every day to get onto campus and not too bad accommodation, Alexander court is good for you!
Living at Ally court can be great at times, especially near the summer! it takes about 15 minutes to walk into Cottrell and same for Pathfoot. It can be a little tiring during the winter months but it's fine. If you are thinking about living here (as it is cheap) there are a few things to keep in mind. 1. The carpet floors are extremely dirty and very stained. 2. There is a lot of mould growing on the walls, windowsills and closets. 3. The radiators in the rooms work for some, not all. I notified them of this in my first week here but nothing has been done - having to sleep fully clothed and still being cold is not good. 4. They just don't care. 5. The closest Unilink (discount) bus stop takes about 15-20min to get to, but there is another bus stop much closer, 2-3 minutes away, behind the Ally court townhouses. For this one, you have to pay full price but comes in handy. The price might be low, but these things should not be okay for them to ignore. love the people tho!
Long walk to lectures and far from other residences. Rooms are small and walls are thin. Kitchens are quite nice and modern but very limited storage space, especially with 7 people to share with. For mid-priced accommodation it is alright but there's plenty to be improved.
One of the cheapest accommodation on campus now. Brilliant location, close enough to get to lectures and stuff without having to plan an hour ahead, but far away enough to not feel like you're living in your lecture theatre. And if you're lucky you get a great view of the beautiful campus, or even the mountains nearby. Otherwise it's a view of the other buildings. The rooms are small and have badly organized floor space, but there isn't much to do about it. Beds are fine. Walls are very thin, and you'll constantly hear footsteps upstairs which isn't fun. Kitchen is great, especially in 6-person flats where you can all have 1 fridge shelf and 2 cupboards each. There's also a freezer. Had to buy our own toaster but that's only like £10. Table big enough for about 5. Couches are comfy and easy to move around if you wanna watch a movie. Showers/Bathrooms are fine, but you'll need to buy ur own toilet paper now and probably some bathmats.
Lovely place. Bit too expensive for what it is but is liveable. The walk down to the uni in the morning could sometimes be a drag, especially if it's snowing or your hungover. Porters were great, really helpful. Not the best tolerance for parties but what can you do. Easy to get to know other students.
Walls are far too thin and seem to produce some horrible sticky residue whenever you lean against them too long. Cleaners were fantastic but very understaffed. Location is beautiful and not too far from the main buildings
really expensive considering how much I pay monthly although it's pretty much the same throughout Stirling uni, and it's really far away from everything else on campus but lots of people nearby and can be a good laugh if you get decent flatmates
