I'll be pursuing a Master's degree at the University of Glasgow starting September 2018, and currently I'm trying to find a place to live. All of the University managed housing has terrible reviews and from what I understand, you're given housing through a type of lottery system where your first choice of accommodation may not be the one you receive. Therefore, I've been looking at other housing options such as places managed by Derwent Students and Fresh Student Living. Are there any Uni of Glasgow graduates/current students/locals on here that could give me advice as to which place/apartment complex would be best for me to live? Where did YOU live when going to Uni? I would prefer to live with other Americans, Brits, Canadians, or other English-speaking people in general as I've had a bad experience studying abroad in the past where I was placed with limited-English speaking students and felt very isolated.
Any help you could give me is super helpful!! Thanks!
