    :mad: (Obviously I know how to spell Residence! Typo) I have found out that the residence at Uni of West Scot, Ayr campus has no cooking facilities!! How the hell is that allowed?! Like i want to live out of a canteen for the frickin year, and at £57 p/w, that strikes me as a tad expensive!! So now I have to go and find a place to live, and I cant decide whether to live in Ayr, or find a place in Glasgow, this really skrews up my plans god damn it!!!! If anyone can help me with advice on where to look for a place, and whether i should go Ayr or Glasgow, it would be appreciated!!

    Ok, I must be mad then, cause I swore I saw double rooms in flat shares in glasgow for £45-£55 p/w, is this normal??? Uni residences aint the norm in Ireland, so I dont have a base for reference, but to rent a room in say, Dublin is about £400 a month, which I would be willing to pay, will I get anywhere for that?? Also, is that normal for there to be no catering facilities?? what if you want to make your own dinners?!!

    Thanks Guys!!

    Glasgow West End is around £300 a month in rent, plus bills. Self-catered halls are around £80 a week, non-ensuite. £57 a week is a steal!

    Are you sure there's no cooking facilities? It seems a bit absurd as even catered accommodation usually has at least a microwave in the halls!

    Their website says here that they have cooking facilities. It also mentions they can provide a list of private accommodation. Halls are much better for first year though, as you meet loads of people.

    Thanks meltdown, but yeah, the info from the uni said "it should be noted that this residence is not self-catering, and meals can be purchased from catering facilities on campus, or the VENDING MACHINE"!!!! I cannot live on pot noodles, n the contract says it starts Sept, and ends in June- when i applied, there was an option to only stay for the first semester. I am going to email the res. manager and get exact details of this "pantry with facilities for light snacks and drinks". Bummer!!!
