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.

I was there for 2 years (1999-2001). Excellent location, spacious and cosy. To me the best accommodation, at least back then.

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.

Loved it there! It was a bit far from other halls and the uni, but also a bit more peaceful. Kitchens are fairly new, big plus after seeing the kitchens in some other halls.

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

Far too small for 6 never mind 7 people. And definitely not worth the money

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

Practically no walls just for decoration really. Wouldn't hurt to oil the doors so they don't stick also.

Pretty simple. At least you get to walk past the castle on the way to class, and Dumyat on the way back.
