I’m moving into Causeway view for this academic year (September 2019) for my first year at Aberdeen university. I was just wondering what it’s like living there and if it worth it or should I just go to Hillhead. I’m slightly worried about not meeting many other freshers.

Do freshers also stay in causeway view and what’s the social life like?

Thank you

I am also staying in causeway view this year, in one of the studios and I'm going into my 4th and final year. in my first year, I stayed in Hillhead and had the best time but I also had friends who stayed in many of the unite buildings. Causeway view is just different as it is not exclusively for freshers so you may find you will meet people from all different courses and years but I wouldn't stress about not meeting people from your own year. There will be plenty!

Hello! Sorry for jumping into this conversation, but I am also planning on moving to causeway view and my biggest concern is that it seems quite far from foresthill campus (30 min walk).
Is there a bus stop nearby that takes you to foresthill? Is it free for medical students?
Any advice/personal experience is very much appreciated!

If you live in Hillhead, there's a free bus going to Foresterhill and there's also a free bus from the SDR library

There are busses you can take that will take you to Foresterhill, but the bus connections in Aberdeen really aren't great, and the busses here are insanely expensive. I almost never take them, but I think a return ticket if 4 pounds, and that is insane. I think a single is 2.70

Causeway View is pretty close to the centre of Aberdeen, but the centre of Aberdeen is ugly af. Especially in winter it can get really depressing because everything is just so so grey.
Maybe have a look on google maps street view and walk to the city centre from Causeway, and you'll see what I'm talking about
