    Hey, yeah you will be fine, it's as central as you could expect to live without paying crazy prices, Glasgow as a city does get more deprived the further east you go, and that area is the beginning of it, however the commonwealth games have re-generated the whole area, so it's much cleaner and safer than it ever used to be. You will face the same problems most city centre dwellings face, drunk folk and junkies, but they most likely won't bother you if you don't bother them.

    However, its a decent little distance from The University of Glasgow, you will have a decent walk and then a trip on the underground. Or a long old bus journey on your hands.

    Hmm, seems pricey. Is it a 1 bedroom place? You could get a place cheaper and far closer to the University. It's a bit of a drag being so far from the University and relying on public transport, but each to their own.

    I agree with the fella above, £600 is a bit steep considering the distance from uni.
