Although on the outside Polwarth House might not look like much, it helped provide me with one of the best years of my life. With it being extremely central on campus I was able to literally ‘roll out of bed and into the classroom’, and had close walking access to all the facilities the university had to offer such as the gym, the swimming pool, the atrium, and all the lecture classes and theatres. Out of all the accommodation at the University, Polwarth House is one of the cheapest, and although it is a great accommodation building, this factor does show. As the same with other buildings there is no en-suites and therefore everyone living in the flat has to share the toilet(s) and shower(s). However, each room does have their own hand basin, and this was extremely helpful throughout the stay. There is also no set living room in each flat, only the kitchen with a dining table and chairs. Despite these negatives, Polwarth was a lively enjoyable place to spend my first year away from home and was sad in the day I moved out.
