Hey, I have to say I’d highly recommend staying away from it. There isn’t very much craic about it whatsoever, and it’s a far cry from what you’d want out of a first-year university experience. That’s not just because of the Studio Apartment either, I know a few others from there living in shared accommodation and they to cannot wait to leave. It gives off a ‘commieblock’ atmosphere and can be extremely barren. There are also no parties allowed, and the events arranged by Staffa are usually void of all life. Instead, I’d highly recommend considering LIV student accommodation which is located right beside 123 York Street. I’ve been in LIV several times and it’s significantly livelier, and a much more enjoyable atmosphere with looser restrictions on parties or having people over. If I had it to do over again I would’ve definetly went there over 123 York Street. Bear in mind LIV is still located on the actual ‘York Street’ as in the street itself lol, but 123 York Street is the accommodation I stayed at, the student roost is also located there. So yeah, I hope you enjoy your first year wherever you end up, but I’d highly recommend staying away from 123, I personally can’t wait to move into the house I’ve booked for second year.
