Did not receive any information from the University of Glasgow on how and when I should apply for the university accomodation. In the beginning of August 2002 I called the Accomodation Office and the International Office at the University of Glasgow and they told me that I should have applied for university accomodation before the end of July 2002. They told me to send my application by fax and I did that. Started to call the Accomodation Office every week and finally they found a twin room for me. I had to share the room (big!) with a Spanish girl. At first I was a bit nervous about sharing a room with a person that I did not know but everything went fine and we never had any problems with each other. The student appartement was for four persons and a Chinese girl and a Brittish girl was also living there. The house was an old beautiful victorian house and it was close to the university.

Type of housing: On campus

Because of the people you can meet from every part of the UK and from every part of Europe. The campus is a place where the cultural exchange is easy and where you can find better accomodation with all the University facilities

The accomodation at the University of Glasgow is very well provided for people coming for more than 6 months. A period of study of one or more years or a Master are recommended to find the best accomodation, possibly starting from september. The University offers a lot of campus flats and apartaments to be shared among students with all comforts. Life is agreeable and nice, so you can fully enjoy your staying in Glasgow

Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
I had to change dorms mid term so I was in two different ones (I was the only one and party it was my own fault so its not common practice to move people like that). I met some great people in the dorms, the location was excellent. It was an easy way to get into the social life.

The first housing was a great facility. The second I was in had a better social life and excellent location. Most international students are in the dorms. However, in some of the university housing there is a great deal of freshers (age 17-18) but not in all of them. The price is decent, less than in Milan anyways.

As an Erasmus sudent it is great to be living on campus as you are in direct contact with other european and international student.For me the Erasmus experience is about being immersed in another culture and learning about others. Living on campus is the perfect solution.

I was quite happy about the student halls. Most of the places offer a wide range of facilities. You have the choice between undergraduate or postgraduate accomodation. Some rooms are en-suite. You have to book early to be able to choose a suitable accomodation as there is a limited number of place available.

Because it has been great staying with other students and sharing our culture each other; also during the studying time we made experiences together and it was a moment to learn different ways to behave on the same problems.

There was an Accomodation Office where you could catch the right addresses and keep contact with private or public structures. When I arrived on January there were few problems to find an accomodation at the Campus because most of the rooms were booked since September; so i've had just few days at one of the University Accomodation and the I moved away.
