    Hey! I've firmed them for Chinese & Economics 😬 I applied for accommodation a couple of days ago and I opted for catered (at Pollock Halls). I had previously been arguing with my parents that I wanted to go non-catered (as it is more affordable) however they pointed out the convenience of catered accommodation and I know a couple of current Edinburgh students who rate the catered accommodation very highly

    I've heard nothing but good things about Pollock Halls and I really liked all of the buildings I visited! When you apply for accommodation, you need to select five options, which is not something I had realised! I went for Chancellor's Court, Holland House, Grant House, Ewing House and Baird House
