    Hi there,

    I am a Canadian student who will soon be accepting my undergrad offer to Glasgow Uni. That being said, my next steps will be finding accommodation. I'm not sure if I will have the chance to come out to Scotland ahead of time to check out residence options so I'm looking for some feedback/recommendations for a first year undergrad student
    Lifestyle wise I'm very social, love to go out, active but at the same time I'm very focused on my studies.
    I've only had the chance to experience Scotland from the perspective of a tourist and I absolutely fell in love, however, seeing as I am moving their for the next four years, any information or feedback from past or current Glasgow Uni students regarding accommodation/student life would be a huge help. Thank-you in advance
