    Hi there,

    I am a Canadian student who will soon be accepting my undergrad offer to Glasgow Uni. That being said, my next steps will be finding accommodation. I'm not sure if I will have the chance to come out to Scotland ahead of time to check out residence options so I'm looking for some feedback/recommendations for a first year undergrad student
    Lifestyle wise I'm very social, love to go out, active but at the same time I'm very focused on my studies.
    I've only had the chance to experience Scotland from the perspective of a tourist and I absolutely fell in love, however, seeing as I am moving their for the next four years, any information or feedback from past or current Glasgow Uni students regarding accommodation/student life would be a huge help. Thank-you in advance

    Hi Scot2be

    Great to read you are moving to Scotland to come to Glasgow Uni, you'll love the experience!

    The University of Glasgow has accommodation exclusively for 1st year undergraduate students who are doing a course at UofG, so it's a great option to meet and live with other students who'll be going to the same Uni as you!

    These are the residences we offer to 1st year undergraduate students:

    Cairncross House
    Kelvinhaugh Gate
    Murano Street Student Village
    Queen Margaret Residences
    Student Apartments
    Winton Drive
    Wolfson Hall

    Click on the links to check more information and videos of the residences

    To get a feel of how the area is like around the residences, check our Know Your Area Guides.
    We've got some students blogging about their experience at halls, so it might be some nice reading!
    Also, check this article titled 'My second home: a Canadian student's experience of Glasgow'
