    Is the accommodation all single sex? As in girls in one block of flats and guys in another, or is it guys one floor and girls on another floor?
    I think it really depends on what accommodation you are going for

    Well the flats are all single sex per block if I understand right, and I think I remember hearing that the corridors are one floor boys, one floor girls, etc.

    I am in the same situation and am unsure too! I know I can apply for interest on the Aberdeen University site but I'm so confused about the "united" or "liberty" selection? What is it referring to and what is the difference?!!!

    Unite and Liberty are accommodation partners with the uni. They're not on campus or in the student village but they're close to uni and it's easy to get to the city centre. I'm currently staying with Unite at Spring Gardens and they're ok. Although it's way too expensive for what they are. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to uni and it's 5-10 minutes away from Union Street. Next semester I'm going to stay with Liberty because they're a little bit cheaper.

    If you have 39 week contract, when does it start and end? Is the move in weekend 3-4 of September?

    I'm also a bit confused about the names of some Hillhead Student Village apartments. I looked them up from the map, but some of them have different names over there.

    I see ok thank you! So would you recommend staying in the liberty accommodation over the university accommodation? I am thinking about the New Carnegie Court accommodation because it was recommended by a friend and I am keen for having my own bathroom but apart from that its a bit of a stab in the dark - i am currently living in the US and feel like I don't have a clue about anything!!!

    I think it really depends on what you want from your uni halls and what you prioritise. If having an ensuite is priority then go for NCC, there are some other options with uni partners as well. I know people that have stayed in both and have said similar things about both.

    I've heard from other students that its quite good to be at Hillhead cause thats where most the students are and theres lots going on, only bad side is that its quite a walk to the centre of town. When I had a tour of Hillhead a lot of it looked very similar in quality, none of them are bad.

    I think if you think about these types of things you might find it easer to find out whats best for you, or thats what I done anyway:

    Catered / Self Catered
    Ensuite / Shared Bathroom
    Flat / Corridor
    (Size of Flat)
    Cost
    Location - Central/Uni/Hillhead

    I plan on putting NCC as my 1st choice Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Does anyone have an opinion on the Crombie halls?.I know ensuite bathrooms are a luxury for a fresher,but I get really sick,especially in cold weather and the prospect of a personal bathroom is enticing ^.^

    Hi, I got an unconditional for English and am trying to decide on accommodation. An en-suite is pretty important to me, and I can't decide whether to stay on-campus in NCC or go with one of the Liberty buildings. I'm just not sure whether there will be other freshers in the partner accommodation? I'm an EU student so I couldn't go for the tours either..

    Stuck between South House, Hector Boece or Grant Court? Opinions?

    Does S.House have 2 bathrooms? I was leaning towards this one cause of the sink in the room?

    I'm stuck between North Court and Grant Court, I might go with the latter one though...
    Sink would be handy(they have that in North Court if I remember correctly) but I kind of prefer the location of Grant Court. Even though the difference isn't that huge tbh.

    I never got a message from Aberdeen after firming so I'm kind of confused about the whole accommodation application process.

    That's my accomodation applied for now. 1st choice New Carnegie Court, 2nd choice Grant Court/Hector Boece. The en-suite, bigger living area, two fridges, and the 3/4-double bed of NCC were enough to swing it for me.
