Everyone was so very lovely. The hall was clean, fresh and bright. The food was really good, and it was so close to the science buildings it made my life very easy.

These rating categories don't adequately represent the ways in which Uni Hall is the best. It has the best atmosphere/community feel, is the perfect size (not too small so you don't have enough people to choose the perfect friends from, and not too big that you feel lost in the crowd). It's also nice that it's a little bit away from the noisiness of town, and gives your legs a good stretch.

University Hall was a great place to live. The sense of hall spirit was strong and the warden team were amazing at supporting students as they adjusted to student life. The Hall management team were also incredible at keeping the hall well run and clean.

In general, a nice and social hall in a good location (especially to the physics, chemistry & management building as it's right next to them). I was in Wardlaw which is girls only. It's a beautiful building but can get quite cold in winter. The rooms, howerver, are spacious and every room is different. In addition, the bathrooms are big and there are 2-3 on each floor. Rooms in Lumsden are warm but not as nice and a bit smaller. In Old Wing again every room is unique and most have washbasins.

Honestly, it's just ok. It's better than DRA/Albany Park/Fife Park location-wise, but I wouldn't say the people here are "fantastic." Common rooms are pretty nice and the cleaners are good, but the wardens/ janitorial staff are lukewarm at best, not so nice, if I'm being honest. Wi-fi can be bad in some rooms, I want to say Old Wing probably is the weakest? Food is pretty bad, and worst part is probably the distance, if you've any classes in Younger Hall/ Buchanan Theatre, be prepared to WALK.

Stayed in Lumsden Wing for a year. It was great! My room was warm and cozy- no spiders or other pests were ever found. The food was great; and I loved the bathroom facilities. The kitchen was OK- not a fan of the electric stoves. The only downturns were the creaky bed(not a standard thing within the hall) and the occasional noise (I was living above main entrance).

A nice atmosphere and loving committee. Despite recent loss of social spaces due to maintenance, the committee and staff managed to keep the reputation. Very good location for science students, and only a 10 minute walk for the arts departments.

University Hall was okay, it was nice being in the middle of all the other halls but it was quite unsociable. Almost resembled a boarding house.

The hall is in a good location for the science building but is a little further from all the buildings in town, the food is good, but the wifi is quite slow in places.

I met a lot great friends here, the showers are the best in town and it's SO WARM but the cleaners are all really rude, the food isn't great and you're constantly battling with other people for communal space.
