The rooms are a good size (not en-suit) and the kitchen is good, but It’s had problem after problem, the freezer turned off over night after a power cut and everybody lost a lot of food and they didn’t seem to care, we never got compensation for losing a lot of food, they did change the freezer eventually! They don’t seem that interested in fixing things. It is a good place to meet friends, it’s where I’ve met 2 of my closest friends at uni and it’s a 5min walk to town and across the toad from the uni. So can’t complain about the location or social aspect. It is disappointing to just have a kitchen in each flat and no couch or social space in each building only in main accommodation office, so you felt excluded having only your room to sit in depending on how clean your flatmates are (couple of mine weren’t). Overall you get what you pay for.
Horrible experience. The cleaners used our kitchen as a social space to sit around our table and chat so I was often too nervous to go in and have breakfast in the mornings. Security guards monitored flats so closely I could never have friends over without them (literally) banging on my kitchen window and shouting at me. Way overpriced especially considering student loan amount. My shower (in the en suite I paid extra for) was like a tap and the kitchen had ants. Not to mention that when the staff cleaned our kitchen at the end of the year and I went to pack up my stuff from the kitchen almost all of it was gone? Made my year in Glasgow absolutely miserable and I honestly can't stress enough for students to go elsewhere. Victoria halls, college lands etc always seemed much better. Don't waste your money on Caledonian court! It was a couple years ago that I left now but I still have friends who live here and from the sounds of it, it has not changed!
If you are at glasgow caledonian university you are better staying in other halls such as victoria halls, so cheap! these halls are disgusting and are a complete rip off! I have cracks in my walls, iron marks on the carpet which have never been fixed and also the shower doesn't work very well.
