Private Halls vs University Halls (Glasgow)

When applying to University I got advised to start considering accomodation options for my university choices while I wait for my application results. I need to really think about my options for Glasgow as its having a housing shortage currently.

Would it still be a good idea to go into Fresher Halls (such as Murano Street for example) to make friends and settle into uni life and then move into private halls the second year or would I risk not having any accomodation at all when I try to make the switch to private halls? Would it be better if I look for private halls that I could stay in for multiple years just in case the housing shortage gets worse?

And just some general private vs university hall pros and cons

If anyone could give me some insight on private and university halls that would be great, thanks!
