    hahah totally!! sounds so good to me! what are you going to study?

    are you choosing Murano as well? ooh it is so hard to choose between large and small flats.. I mean, it must sound pretty stupid, but it is kinda important

    Yeah i'm putting Murano as my first choice! I think i'd prefer a large flat because then there's bound to be someone you'll get on with

    Just a quick question (sorry if it's already been mentioned/answered ) I have a conditional, but I want to check it out on the open day before applying, will this put me at a disadvantage?

    Also, whats Murano like day to day? I have a fair idea of cairncross becuase of my sister, but not Murano, but I'm more inclined to go with latter because a higher chance of single, seems more sociable etc...

    i've already applied for Murano large flats so if you need a party person as your neighbour you can easily write in additional information that you would like to be my neighbour i just remember you wrote earlier that you don't wanna live with non-sociable students anyways, I'm sure we all will have a great time in Murano

    Well, depends where you're applying. If it's Murano, you'll be fine applying a little late, whereas, if it's Carincross single/QM - you wanna get your application in pronto. The accommodation office say it (a conditional) doesn't disadvantage you.

    I don't have first hand experience, so I can't answer the second question. But Murano's certainly the more reputable one in terms of socializing, parties etc.

    This has probably already been answered in some form, but - if I have an unconditional offer, and I firmed it, and I applied for housing last Friday - when should I be expecting to hear back?

    This is a quote from the email you probably got: • Applications for accommodation from students who have accepted an Unconditional Firm offer of study for session 2012/2013 are processed from Mid-April onwards, thereafter usually on a weekly basis.

    Yeah that's the same email I got, though I didn't get it until a few days after I'd sent off my application, so if she has just done it that might explain why she hasn't had the e-mail yet.

    Hello Can someone tell me anything good/bad about Student Apartments?
    Haven't been there myself, but from what I've heard..
    It is on the university's doorstep! Literally two minutes, which is great.
    However, there is a big chance of you ending up in a twin room.
    And the social life seems to be not that great

    Mind you that I have never seen SA myself

    Well, I don't like partying every single night, so the social life wouldn't be a problem for me, I guess

    But I don't want to live in a twin room, even if it's cheaper. I didn't start my application for accommodation yet, so I don't know how it works exactly. Let's say that I have put SA single room in first place and Cairncross House single room in second place. If they can't offer me a single room in SA will they offer me a twin room in SA or a single room in Cairncross House? I hope, I've explained myself clear enough that somenone could give me an answer ;D

    Probably a single room in Cairncross, since that is your next preference, unless they can't give you that either.

    They won't bung you in something you don't want unless they have to. I mean, they're not going to assume anything, if that makes any sense.

    Hey everyone I'm hopefully going to be living in Murano Street next year (soo excited!). I was wondering if it really is on a "massive" hill, as I want to get a bike for uni. Does anyone know if its common for students living in Murano (and Glasgow Uni in general) to have bikes, or do they mostly walk?
    Thanks!

    when I talked to somebody who works in Murano office ( I had a few questions , so I called them about a week ago) , I was told that students mostly walk but many of them have bikes anyways. I was thinking of buying one as well, but I'm not sure how expensive they are in Glasgow.
