Hi guys, not a medical student but I'm sure I can help. The medical school is in the main campus, so you'd be looking for halls in the West End. The closest one would thus be the Student Apartments. Murano Streets stands out because it is the party halls. Other than that all other halls are the same, excepting of course the living conditions (the more expensive, the better though not always)

Uni halls tend to be cheaper than private, with the exception of Firhill court which is dirt cheap for some reason. I don't think there's more I could tell you about them that you can't find out yourself. As for private halls, you'll most likely get an en suite bathroom (QMR offers that too). I could recommend Unite Students and Home for Students, I had friends who lived there and they were pretty good

I'm not sure if the accommodation is first come first serve, but I know they guarantee you a place if you come from abroad (and I think from outside Glasgow too, has to be)

I would say so yeah. Generally people go to private halls because they're quieter (nicer too). You will see many people in 2nd year or older, who already have a group of good friends. You will get on well with your flatmates and maybe some other people you meet through friends or just see regularly, but I doubt there will be more. In uni halls you're much more likely to find 1st year students. Murano for example is only made up of 1st years, and it is very social as you can imagine.

I had friends in Clifton house, really nice place, nice area and very close to uni. My friend moved in there just for the study space. Really good place if you're thinking of private halls
