    But otherwise, It's lovely Maybe I just had a bad time! What are you gonna be studying? : D
    Oh wow That story is something I would expect from teh other halls as they r old.. What a horror story. Still, maybe htey improved + I don`t really care much about heating + I like the size of the 3rd type of the flat
    Oh well, I will have a look around when I come there for sure

    I am gonna study Ethical Hacking and hopefully at Abertay Still no response

    Just so you guys know, I am in Opal this year and it's much batter. I've heard a lot of people saying how bad it was last year but personally not had a lot of those problems.

    The lift has broken twice, though, and they can be really slow to fix things, but apart from that I'd recommend it. Opal has a good party atmosphere and it's so convenient for getting to uni!

    I'm glad it's gotten better! It was so dreary and horrible to live in when I was there. It was like a prison! The only thing that would put me off going back is how expensive it is x

    Thanks Caitlin I'm gonna apply there this year then, cause it was the bad things that made me hate it, but if it's better now then I have no reason not to go back!

    Also, Congrats to everyone getting in! x

    No, but it`s the most expensive one out of the ones that are affiliated to Abertay
    There are some accom. that are 130 p.w.on a similar level than Opal (I think there are links in this thread)
    However, Opal isn`t that much more expensive than other halls, 10 pounds isn`t that much (even though it adds up to 440 overall but it`s manageable, and that`s saying the dude from the country where u pay 200 pounds a month(per person) for rent in a capital city of my country)

    According to the rate sheet downloaded on Abertay website, the rents for 38-weeks leases (11th September to 3rd June) about standard rooms are:

    Alloway Halls £2460.50
    Victoria Chambers £3146.78
    Meadowside £3702.72 (en-suite)
    Lyon Street £3051.02

    Opal seems to have a minimum lease of 42 weeks for £4158 by paying by instalments.

    Meadowside £3702.72 (en-suite) vs £4158 and it`s a longer lease and there is prob. no doubt Opal is better. However, it was a long time I looked at pics and stuff so I might very well be biased and I was comparison them according to weekly payments only in terms of prize.
    I will take a tour and see wassup.

    What is the difference between a standard and a en-suite room?

    En-suite = u have ur own bathroom
    in standard the bathroom is probably a communal space for the whole bunk-flat(I might have made this word up ).
    So for me it`s definitely en-suite>all
