Melville is a strange looking building but residents are proud to live there. This hall is the best value for money, no question as the cheapest catered hall! The food has improved dramatically over the last year, lectures are 5 minutes away, the gym is just outside, wifi is impeccable and everyone within the community is extremely happy and well cared for.

Once you get over the fact that it's not the prettiest of halls, you start to love it. Great hall spirit, good value for money considering it's catered, and big rooms that are cleaned regularly. Kitchens could be better (boilers don't always work, hobs take an age to cook anything, and they get locked at 11pm) and the Lower Common Room is a bit grim, but apart from that, my experience of living in Andrews Melville was good.

It may be ugly as anything and cold as all buggery but Melville has an amazing community, brilliant staff and is ideally situated for science students. Also it's de-facto the cheapest catered hall in the university.

The community in Melville is nothing I've ever come across before. Walking/cycling into town is not too bad, and it is just next to the science buildings and the sports centre.

Best introduction to university I could have wished for. The architecture is not grant, but the people you meet, the closely-knit friendship groups and the common spaces make a huge difference.

Really great community atmosphere and cozy rooms. I was disappointed when I got Melville, but by the end of the year I couldn't have been more thankful that it's where I ended up. Great people generally and lots of communal space. It's not as "pretty" as Sallies, but you learn to love it. Fun events and even the walk into town isn't that bad. Perfect location for science students and really close to the sports centre. I was worried about the shared showers before I moved in but it worked out fine and there was never any queuing to use it. Nice study rooms and computer room that are open 24 hours. Food wasn't great but do any catered halls really have good food?

Looks pretty ugly from the outside but it grows on you fast. Great atmosphere and I managed to get my room looking pretty nice. There's lots of hot water and I've never had to queue for a toilet or shower.
