    Hi! on the off chance that I manage to meet my conditions I'm wanting to move into accommodation but I'm stuck at which to choose.

    I've narrowed down to Blackfriars, Collegelands and Chancellors Hall but I don't know which order to put them down.

    Any advice as to the order you'd put them in and reason why? Or even if you think I should reconsider one of the options at all?

    (I chose these mainly because they are en-suite and close by)

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    never been to Chancellors but regarding Blackfriars vs. Collegelands I'd say it depends:

    Both are really close to Strathy (and each other), however, Blackfriars is a slightly (maybe 300m) closer to the Aldi supermarket on High Street.

    Blackfriars are the most popular private halls for Strathclyde students. There are many parties going on. However, everything's a little older there.

    Colleglands is rather new and barely has any reputation but looks nice on the pictures. Additionally, it is cheaper.

    Although closer to a supermarket sounds better, I'm 17 - so would I be better off in Collegelands? I'm not sure if the positives about Blackfriar would be worth the feeling of uncomfortableness Id most likely experience due to the age gap

    Well, if you're from Scotland you might have a look at all three dwellings and make your decision afterwards
