Everyone here keeps to themselves. Halls are separated by gender and there’s only 4 or 5 rooms per hall. Hallway doors need to be closed so there is not much intermingling. Also does not have its own dining hall but it takes the same amount of time to walk to AI, Lothian, and Glen Mor. Probably my f...
Honestly it was a nice place to live as a first year. The location could have been worse trying to walk to some classes on campus based on distance. The kitchen never worked and I still have a vivid memory trying to boil water on the stove for 45 minutes until I realized that it was never on to begi...
It’s hard to be social as the dorms are suite style, and the rooms are on the smaller side with high ceilings, but the bathrooms are private which is nice.

Pentland Hills is more of a private resident hall with individuals bathrooms and showers, smaller suites (10 people each), a common lounge, & only 2 stories. You’re in the middle of both dining halls and have easy routes to the buildings for classes. The only con is the walk to the gym :/

It's fine for fitting most people's needs. Nothing special, though. Everything is functional, the bathrooms are a little old and crusty (peeling areas). The showers are finnicky.
I have been in a Pentland triple this year, and considering that Pentland was originally meant for doubles says a lot. It's very cramped, but I can deal with that. But since I am also in Pentland A, it's an incredibly old building but no one fixes anything, even with work orders.
