You get one room and shared bathroom/shower/kitchen facilities for £99 a week. I felt like I was living in a hotel the entire year. There's almost no point in the common room as its only ever used for parties and management actually locked it because they made so much mess. Our corridor was full and we were all sharing a kitchen with not enough storage space and they wouldn't let anyone move into the next corridor which was nearly empty. Most of the cleaning staff were friendly. I wish there was a recycling bin in the kitchen. Location is ok. 15-20 minute walk to main campus, 10 minute walk to Lidl's. Fyfe is in Hillhead, and the main building here is the closest thing students have to a social space so that's good. There are also regular buses right outside, but they're expensive. Laundry is also expensive and half the time the dryers don't even work. Spare yourself the cost and buy a drying rack. Internet is pretty good but drops occasionally.
Don't go here if you don't want your stuff knicked! Had scheduled maintenance over christmas break, and came back to find they'd left my door wide open and unlocked! Poor staff and management, wanted to know nothing about it
Nice and clean, but you'd expect something more for the money you pay. Taps and showers are ridiculous, doorlocks can drive you crazy. But generally it's not bad. You'll need your own pots, graters and so on, but things like toasters or microwave are already here. Laundrettes are not in control of reception and apparently they can't do anything but call the company if something goes wrong.
