    I accepted my offer of accom at Firhill Court a few weeks ago and it was my second choice, which is what I wanted in the end woo! Anyone else staying there? I can't wait to find out who I'm sharing with, roll on September!

    Anybody got Murano Street large flats 'the Hall'? I've finally accepted


    Also seen a few people asking about the £450 prepayment, I was able to extend mines to the end of the month but they said no to installments etc

    If it doesn't say large you're in small. And if you didn't request single sex it'll likely be mixed. Also, I don't think any of the large flats are single sex (at least from the ones I've been too, which is a fair portion of them.)

    The large flats can be hit or miss considering IMO they consist of the best and the worst flats (condition wise) in Murano. Also they can be disgusting. You should have seen our big fridge until a few days ago when my flatmates mum came and showed us the wonders of bleach. (So much mould, boke.) And the cleaning god. We get weekly cleaners and we have to clean for them coming, which took up about an hour of everyone's time one night a week, which pretty much means no one went out that night of the week. I genuinely have went out once on our cleaning day through the full year.

    Large > Small though. More fun, gets creepy if you're alone though (like I am the now :cry2:)

    Hey I had a problem choosing too but got it in the end. Summary:
    Murano- biggest site, famous for parties and has the biggest flats but it is very basic
    Queen Margaret- nicer and seems more like a home. Ensuite. Is very limited and think they are all gone.
    Firhill- close to murano, bit of a walk to uni like murano but similar to QM in terms of rooms and bathroom facilities. Quieter but easy to visit murano for parties. Next to a football stadium tho.
    Cairncross- similar to a youth hostel in terms of planning. V close
    Winton drive- beside QM, not as nice
    Kevingate (I think)- near cairncross, big as murano tho your own room etc. Mostly for postgrads or later years

    Hi everyone, which one of the accommodations is considered to be the best for first year students? I'm moving to Glasgow this September (never been there before) and I'm having a hard time deciding where to live... I thought a student apartment would be nice, although it seems a bit separated from the other accommodations, but I would love to know more about it. Thank you very much in advance!
