    I'm going into first year and I wasn't sure about accommodation but, after I saw the Old Fire Station, I didn't want to live anywhere else!
    I'm in 266L room 4 that's so good that i've managed to find someone who I'm sharing with

    I almost just booked a room in 264J! I'm still hesitant about booking anything though as I haven't sent my financial forms to Aberdeen yet and I don't know...It's really hard to make a decision on stuff like this when I'm so far away and have no way of really looking into housing but I think I'll be booking a room by tomorrow evening or so. Have you been there and checked everything out yet? It would be nice to be able to chat with someone who's looking into the same place.

    I'm in Aberdeenshire, so pretty nearby already. Indeed!

    I'll pm you my facebook cause I'm sure we'll end up adding each other at some point... unless it turns out we don't get on at all

    Hey

    I'd say go for it unless there's any better options for you personally.
    I've had a tour of the fire station, I can see it being a lot of fun living there! There's everything you'd need nearby including shops and entertainment, and the universities too of course.

    Aw would be good if you booked into 264J haha so i could speak to someone before i move in ;D!

    Well i live an hour and a half from Aberdeen and i happened to go to Aberdeen for the weekend and got a phone call from my mum to say i got into college so i went straight to look at the accommodation in aberdeen and the 'Old Fire Station' was my favourite and it is very close to union street which is helpful for night outs and is not from uni/college either! I would recommend staying! I also don't know how much i am getting through SAAS though !

    I have no idea what SAAS is! Haha. So you don't know the other 2 guys who've booked 264J? I'm pretty sure that's the room I'm going to book later today if it's still available. Do you have facebook or skype or something? I'd love to get to know the people I might be living with!!!

    Thanks for the advice! I'm making so many big decisions about going overseas that I can never be sure if my judgement is any good, haha. But yeah, I think by tonight or in the next few days I'll have booked a room!
