As everyone knows, DRA is an amazing place but it's too far away from the town centre. I have been staying there for one semester and going back and forward is always annoying. Some guardians are very unfriendly but it really depends on who you find. The DRA bar is empty most of the time and no one goes to the events organised there (apart when they offer free pizza). However rooms are modern and decent in size. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a kettle is provided. We also have a television even though is doesn't work.

The room is of very good quality. And has everything that could be needed. Bad location however as is pretty far out with limited transport links. A bike will get you anywhere you need to go however. The catering is good and has a nice atmosphere. Similar to the rest of the hall, everything is busy and lively. Main criticism is the unreasonable price. Nothing is worth the amount that is charged.

The rooms themselves are very spacious with a nice double bed and plenty of storage. The ensuite is good but the shower does become rather like a wet room but nothing an old towel can't solve. The only thing is if you and your flat mates are all self catered there is not a huge amount of space for food and cooking utensils.

Nice flats with everything you need and really helpful staff, it's pretty far away from everything but it's well worth the long walks to town

The location of this hall was further away from town but it was quite modern and very sociable! The social experience was great and was able to easily make friends when first moved in! My room was a double ensutite and i was in a flat with four others!

Good sized double room with ensuite that's a decent size. However, the accommodation is the furthest out and it's isolated from both the university buildings and general amenities such as a grocery store.

Location is a bit far from town but at least good for exercise, and there's not too much noise at night

The rooms are very good and the best part of the accomadation. They have plenty of storage space and a large notice board. I'd say the only problem is that the window is quite small and I like natural light. It's the furthest away from the centre but it's within walking distance so that's fine. Probably the biggest problem is that it isn't very good for socialising in my opinion. You only really get to see the 4 other people in your flat.

Great view of fields and trees(if you're lucky), good facilities overall. A bit out of town but not far if you're a science student or own a bike. Rooms and new laundry system are good. Quite expensive but you probably get your money's worth.

Heating and catering very good. Ensuite often floods due to inadequate shower and draining. Quite far from town.

An expensive halls considering all that went wrong! Was paying £6330 for Fife Park and we went around a month without heating and we never had hot water consistently for more than 2 days - kind of shocking. Halls were clean and there were always events on to keep you entertained, so not all bad.

The facilities inside the accomodation are all very efficient and work well. Always have hot water no matter what time of day, the underfloor heating is great so you never feel cold if it's on. The room is spacey and cosy.

Good location. Good size and quality of rooms. Kitchen of adequate size and space. Social experience okay, thanks to events and bar. Facilties are okay, problem with heating tor a short period of time.
