    Between Cairncross, Winton Drive, Student apartments and Murano, which one is the best? (Good mixture of social life and quality of accommodation) Thanks.
    A student at Glasgow uni said not to live in Murano, because "it's a party sh*thole". I guess there's a lot of partying, there. I think as long as you participate in a lot of clubs and stuff you wont miss out. Also, wherever you end up staying guarantees you'll be stuck with first years anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much about social life...

    When do we usually get our Student loans from SAAS? Because I wont be able to pay fo´r my advance accommodation payment until I have my Student loan, will this be in any way doable?

    Thanks!

    hey im starting philosophy and economics this year at glasgow and am between murano and student apartments. murano is really sociable (which i want), but student apartments is close to the uni which is very useful as im going to be working as well and am worried about losing time if i live somewhere like murano. how hard IS it to commute when you live in murano??? and how sociable are the student apartments???? thx

    You'll be attending parties or going to pubs no matter where you live. If I'd live in Murano, I'd be afraid of not having peace and quiet for my studies or sleep... I'd go with student apartments...
