    Totally agree with you on the extra £20 for QM! Not sure what Cairncross is like but as far as I'm aware, there are very few single rooms, most are twin. For my 6 choices I did:
    1. Murano Small
    2. Murano Large
    3. QM
    4. Student Apartments Large Single
    5. Student Apartments Single
    6. Cairncross Large Single

    I'm pretty sure that if Murano is somewhere in your top 3, you'll get a place there!
    Brill thanks for your help! Just wondering, what made you put Murano Small above Murano Large?

    Hey guys. Just looking for some help with regard to the distance between the vet school and each of the accommodation choices.
    I know wolfson is like a 10 minute walk to the vet school, so its going to be my first choice, without the ensuite as the prices are ridiculous. I have no idea about the rest.

    Thank you i really expected to be reapplying so it was a nice surprise!.. oh really has he got a place somewhere else? yeah i've noticed that but i thought it was more of an American thing, strange you have to do three subjects! what do you reckon you'll go for?
    Yeah he's hoping for Aberdeen I think. I've no idea there's loads I've been thinking of but it probably will be between Philosophy or maybe Geography. I don't even know when I'm meant to pick! I'm actually so excited about uni now Are you from Scotland?

    Advice from people I know in Murano at the moment. Also, I wanted to know that although I'll be in the so-called party halls, there'll be a higher chance of me being able to just shut my door and study when I need to. Plus, the idea of sharing only one kitchen with 10-12 people, no thanks!

    Personally the idea of not having somewhere I can retreat to now and then and chill out, watch a film, play the xbox or read a book, is horrible and I don't think I could ever handle that kind of living arrangement. Everyone is different though, you might love it.

    Nope wanted to do Geography but ended up having to choose History instead cause the timetable didn't fit. Wow that's so far! I'm sure you'll like Glasgow though it seems really nice. I'm from Belfast myself so only a wee trip over the sea haha.

    I know it was awful .. definitely will be flying to uni! i've spoke to some people who go there now and they love it so hopefully it will be good! aww i bet she probably is in a nice way you'll find out for sure if she keeps distracting you doing revision haha, my mum's the same i couldn't have chosen much further away although i didn't intend to go so far just how things worked out! really i don't i prefer it to the softer southern as well, better than my plain accent (it is not famerish though!) No nobody i think the furthest is Liverpool other than me.. how about you?

    I think I'm like you. I will choose single space
    Thanks !
    I have another question though : should I apply for accomodation now or can I wait a little ? I mean, if I apply later, am I sure to have a place ?
    I haven't chosen my insurance yet that's why I ask this question.

    I know same we had a complete disaster with the boat at the applicants day and ended up getting lost in Glasgow and nearly missing it! flying is definitely the easiest option haha. Well there's only 2 unis over here so not much choice for me lol, though there's quite a lot of people I know considering Glasgow. One of my best friends has it as her firm too though not sure if that's a good thing or not

    Question for people staying in Murano:
    1. Can you bring your own curtains?
    2. Is it worth getting a new double duvet for the beds?
    3. Is it okay to bring extra storage, like under the bed plastic drawers?
    Thanks!

    I'm so glad it was my dad and not me driving, he was so close to smashing his phone because the gps kept telling us to go the wrong way :L and cause knowing me I'll end up just relying on her instead of going out of my way to make friends :P but it's also sorta good in a way, makes things less scary

    Well I lived at boarding school for 2 years, and shared a room both years. It's ok if you share with someone you know you get along with, who are similar to you and has the same routines, personality etc. You can be lucky and get someone similar to you, but there will always be some things, big or small, which you don't agree on, or things the other person does which pisses you off. Consider if you could cope with living with someone who snores, or is super messy or plays loud music when you want to sleep etc..

    It depends. If you are 100% sure about studying at Glasgow, and want to Firm it or if you already have done this, then apply for accommodation asap. The sooner you apply the more likely it is that you will get the accommodation you want, especially if you want QM- since these rooms are highly sought after because they are en-suite. Remember; when you Firm on UCAS, it takes over 72 hours before you can apply for accommodation, so you lose some time here too.

    I think I read that if you are an international student you are guaranteed accommodation first year. You will find more info on the University homepage Good luck!
