    Hi,
    Does the £450 deposit need to be paid before we receive our funding from saas?
    Thanks
    Hi jack_hughez1,

    The £450 deposit needs to be paid when accepting your contract of accommodation.You will have one week to accept your offer from the day your offer is issued. The payment is not linked to your SAAS funding.

    How long would pre-term accommodation be? Could it be as little as 3 days, or is there a set duration? Had a look on the website but couldn't find anything.

    thanks
    Hi thermometer,

    Pre-term accommodation will be offered from 3rd September onwards. You can apply for any number of days from that date to 9th September when the term contract starts.

    Once you have accepted your offer, you will be able to apply for pre-term accommodation at our Online Accommodation Site.

    It is advisable to apply as soon as you know the date of arrival. Pre-term accommodation is limited and there is no guarantee that we will be able to meet all requests.

    Hi,
    I'm a student from Spain and I was thinking about doing my Erasmus exchange programme at the University of Glasgow. I would like to study there for the whole academic year and stay at one of the Residence Halls. I was wondering if it is likely that I get a place since I will need to wait until I'm accepted at the university and I will not know that until a bit after the application period is open. (I'm planning on going in 2017/2018)

    Hola Atticusartoria!

    Great to hear you are thinking about coming to Glasgow Uni, you'll love it! :heart:

    The applications for accommodation usually open around mid February every year. You may apply for accommodation later, right up to the start of the new course.Rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis, so the sooner you apply the better your chances to get your top choices. If when you apply we still have availability in our residences, then we'll be more than happy to offer you a place!

    Saludos! :ciao:

    Keep an eye on your email!

    Hi

    You could bring a food processor into the flat but you are not allowed to keep it in your bedroom, it must be in the kitchen.

    These are some items which are not allowed within the residence:
    .Candles or incense sticks.
    .Personal heaters/electrical blankets.
    .Plug in air fresheners.
    .Electrical whitegoods.
    .Deep fat fryers.
    .Humidifiers/dehumidifiers.
    .Plug in faerie lights.

    The following items can not be kept in bedrooms:
    .Kettles.
    .Rice cookers.
    .Toasters.
    .Steamers.

    Any items you may bring to the flat must comply with the current EU regulations.

    Do you only receive an offer of accommodation for one place or can you choose between several offers?

    You will receive an offer for one residence only.The allocation process takes into account your preferences, so it's likely you'll get offered one of your choices

    Hello

    I've heard the Murano large flats have been done up a bit lately?
    Would you suggest small or large is better? Not bothered about the social aspects of a small or large flat as I can imagine its fairly easy to have fun either way.
    Just which is (potentially) cleaner and just nicer?

    Cheers

    Hi Jordan997

    If Murano was one of your top options but you've now changed your mind and rather have an offer for a residence you put lower on the list, then you could contact us at [email protected]

    If this is not the case, if you don't accept this offer we might not be able to offer you any other accommodation.

    Hi Henry.97,

    Murano Street has undergone refurbishment in some of the buildings.The refurbishment was done in both small and large flats.

    Small flats are shared between 3/5 students and have 1 shower and 1 toilet.
    Large flats are shared between 10/12 students and have 2 showers and 2 toilets.These flats also get a weekly light cleaning service of the common areas

    Hi Jordan909,

    Your accommodation fees will be added to your MyCampus student account when you move in in September. You'll be able to pay online through MyCampus, where you can also set up a monthly direct debit. If you set up a direct debit you can pay your accommodation fees in 8 monthly instalments (October to May). See typical instalments for the different residences.

    The payment can be sorted out in September

    Hi!

    I'm a student from Spain coming to Glasgow for my Erasmus starting next September.

    I was wondering: can we only pay the instalments monthly? Is there any way to pay the instalment per semester or something similar? Or is paying monthly the only way? I'm sorry if it sounds like a stupid question, but I just want to get my head around my finances and organise it well.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi asun.dunham,

    If you do not wish to set up a direct debit you can pay your accommodation fees using a card on MyCampus or by bank transfer.

    It is possible to pay all your accommodation fees in a single payment by card or bank transfer at the beginning of the course.

    Hope this helps with planning your exchange year in Glasgow

    Saludos,

    Hi,

    I've put Glasgow as my firm choice but only have a conditional offer and live in Glasgow already. I've applied for accommodation but is it likely I will get accommodation at all? I'd be happy with basically all six of my choices and just want accommodation in general but don't know if I'll get it due to my conditional offer and proximity to the campus.
