The East Lothian Dorm has cozy, well-maintained rooms. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms came in clean and tidy. Additionally, the dorm provides storage for individual possessions, which is a lovely touch. The small number of bathrooms, especially during peak hours, was a minor drawback. Altho...

I don’t know how big the other rooms are but the triple room was definitely spacious (you could fit a pool table in here -said by a visitor).

Pretty little decent room. You have access to AC which you can control. The halls are nice. Lounge to interact with people in the halls. There's a dining hall in the same building which is good knowing you have close way of eating

The double occupancy room is a pretty fair amount of space, not crowded. It is pretty close to campus, it's a 10-15 min walk to class buildings. Expect restrooms to be a little dirty depending on who you live with. Probably one of the better dorms.

Lothian in general is far from classes. The room is great with controllable air conditioning and newer furniture than west lo, pentland hills, and AI. Bathrooms are stalls and showers are curtains while dundee has doors for both. East lothian triple deluxe is a bigger room than a regular triple so i...
