    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!
    Is it not that if you apply one day before the deadline you have as good a chance of getting a place as applying five months before the deadline, rather than first-come, first-served?

    How I understand it, when it comes to QM at least, is that since there are so few rooms compared to the number of people applying for accommodation here, you have a better chance of getting a room here if you apply early. I might be wrong, but I seem to remember some comments about this. However being placed somewhere which wasn't top 3 on your list is rare.

    Just to let everybody know, I received my offer for Kelvinhaugh Gate 15 minutes ago.

    So check your mail accounts to see if you also got your offer for the halls.


    Btw: I am a postgraduate from Germany starting this fall.

    I also recieved an offer for accomodation, but the website won't let me log in so I don't know for which accomodation yet Hoping it'll be one of my top choices, otherwise I'll probably look for private accomodation

    Thank you for both of your answers

    I will choose single space for this year and I will see in second year for twin space.

    I can't afford QM so I guess I will go to Cairncross or Murano.

    Just to add my voice to the others, I got QM too! Haven't accepted yet because have to wait till payday to pay the deposit. I'm guessing I'll find out the specific block/room when I accept it.
