    Hello!
    I'll be moving from Sweden to study Physics with Astrophysics in Glasgow in sep.
    I've already signed the contract on a 'house' (at least that's what the landlord calls it, personally I would call it a flat) in Maryhill. 3 bedrooms, garden on the front and back side. It looks really nice!! Thou, when I started to research a little bit about the area, regarding crime rates, how many students who lived there etc. it didn't please me..
    All I found about Maryhill was people saying "Well, part of it is ok. But I wouldn't recomende it". This worries me a bit! :P
    So, I'll be living at Glenfinnan Drive, is that a nice part or is it just a dump? How friendly is the area?


    Looking forward starting a new life at the University in Glasgow!!

    You'll be fine just don't make a nuisance of yourselves and don't make a habit of hanging about outside at night, particularly alone.

    You could live in the most deprived place in Scotland and still be safe, and maryhill is cool, and really close to uni also. Big thing that matters is cost, if it's going to save you a wedge staying in Maryhill then it's a winner in my book. I would actually live just outside glasgow, ten mins on the train and you can get a one bed place for about £250-300 a month.

    Good luck with the move, you will love Glasgow.
