Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Because I wouldn't have to share a toilet and kitchen with four other people.
Personal comments:
The room I was assigned to was very spacious, and the toilet and kitchen were a couple of steps away from the room. It was easy to meet people in the building because most people would hang out in the common rooms.

It was pretty good after the first month because at the beginning I was not used to listen to so different language. Also in Glasgow there's a slang not easy to understand at a first approach.
