Definitely not worth the money you're paying, the structure is quite old and looks like a prison. The rooms are small but have a lot of storage space, and don't have a sink, while both Muirhead and Polwarth do. The living room is quite good, but the kitchen could have been way better with small improvements such as a bigger fridge or a decent oven. Bathrooms are small and quite ugly, also the shower in my flat was terrible (you had to push a button every 30 seconds to get water, like a public shower!!!), but they were well equipped and good enough for 5 people. There are some vending machines at the entrance, which is good as Fraser is the only cheaper accommodation disposing of them. Laundry is not on site. The position is good if you want to get into uni life, but the town is 20 min by bus. If you're a fresher I think Fraser is one of the best options, as everyone in their first year lives on campus and the choice actually is quite poor.
I was in cheaper halls, I made really good friends there but you feel like you are paying £300 a month to live in a prison. And I was in the nicer cheaper halls! Also a lot of fire alarms. Cookers were not fixed when broken and squirrels come through the window. Stirling itself is pretty boring so thankfully there are regular trains to other cities.
Best value for money. Was in a 5 bed flats, large living room and kitchen compared to ASH, muirhead and polwarth. Lot's of storage in bedrooms. Two bathrooms, one with shower (sharing was never an issue). Building has a vending machine (polwarth, muirhead and donnely don't). Nice smoking area which is sheltered, a lot of people from fraser and donnely congregate here, met a lot friends here in first few weeks. In general; going for the cheaper flats is far more worth it and most people in the posh ones I've met wish they had, social life is better as porters are more relaxed and you don't need to let people in and out of the building with your key card every time you have friends round. Don't go for muirhead, it isn't any better than polwarth in terms of living conditions. Polwarth is a lot better than it initially seems so don't be put off if you're on a budget. Fraser and donnely are basically the same and flats are always really warm. Not a lot of living space in ASH.
