Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I like company, but also to have my own space. I think that this kind of accomodation allows both of these things.
Personal comments:
Even if I could expres some complains, at the end the accomodation that Glasgow University provided to me was exaclyt what I needed. Close to the university, not far from the city centre and above all close to all my friends.
