This place is amazing, the atmosphere and welcome you receive from the reception staff is great. The property is very clean and is great value for money. The guy who showed us round is very knowledgeable of the city and property, was very friendly and polite, good laugh. Cant wait to move to this property in September.

I have lived here at the old fire station for 3 years and I can honestly say that I wouldn't want to live anywhere else throughout my time at university. The staff are like family and are available 24/7 to ensure all students are cared for. The security team are on hand at all times as well as the maintenance team, but all members of staff are there to support you and your wellbeing whilst living away from home. The front desk staff are always on hand to help with day to day concerns, and Gary in particular goes above and beyond to ensure all students are looked after. I highly recommend considering this property to stay at if you're looking for a home away from home, it has certainly been the best decision I've ever made!!

Great accommodation for my first year of college, very welcoming and the staff are great. Very friendly and always there to help you if you need it. Gary also gives you free noodles!

Staff are friendly, helpful and always available. The old fire station is 15 minutes away by bus to RGU, and less than a 5 minute walk to Aberdeen University. As an RGU Student, Its useful that the bus stop is a 30 seconds walk from the main gate. With buses that stop directly on campus, every five minutes.
