If you want to meet tonnes of great people, go out lots and genuinely have an enjoyably first year of uni then murano is 100%%% the place you want to be. On the other hand, if you like your own peace and quiet and don’t like going out then I’d perhaps look into other options. I struggled when it came to deciding what halls to go into (primeraly because I wanted my own bathroom and murano doesn’t offer this) but I decided to go for murano after reading that it was better for meeting folk. Honestly, I don’t know one person that genuinely had a good experience at other halls of resident (Queen Margaret, Furhill ect). They always ended up crashing at murano and always talked about how much they regretted staying where they did. Although it is slightly prisonlike, murano is definitely the place to be to make the most out of first year.

Q
What size are the beds in the Murano student village? Pics make it look like a double.
By member633593 On 24th August 18
Some rooms have 3/4 size beds, but others have singles. It depends on whether you get put in a refurbished flat or not. You'll find out what bed size you have when you move in :)

Some of the halls are overpriced and far away (for ex. Murano). Service at halls is not very good either. Try to live privately if you can.

Horrible! I hated living here. Didn’t get on with my flat mates and also thought it was a rip off. Paying over £520 a month for a single bed, rubbish WiFi and no control over your own hearing. The windows are single glazing and right beside the bed which is also Terrible. You need to pay for your own laundry (think it’s £2 a wash and £1 a dry) but the laundry is in another building the other side of the Murano village!!!!

The student accommodation is poorly maintained, and poorly managed, with repairs taking too long to be resolved. The location is poor, in a rough area of Glasgow, close to a canal (which does not seem safe for students). The social experience is quite good, but the walls are very thin so it can be difficult when others are talking in another room.

I stayed at Murano because I'd heard from absolutely everyone that it was the place to go if you wanted to make a bunch of friends and have a good social life, and that's the truth. I was in a small flat (4-5 people) but still made a lot of friends. Just by going outside your door, you run into people you know. There's always a party going on, and big parties like Halloween and post-exam nights are impossible to avoid. Whilst the location in regards to everywhere else isn't great (25min walk from uni, 50min walk from the city centre) Murano is it's own community and you don't feel isolated. The rent is pretty decent, because it does include everything (!!except laundry!!). Cleaning is entirely what you make of it. My flatmates were... not clean. However, I spent most of my time in my friend's flat in a different block, and him and his flatmates always kept their space really tidy. I stand by the claim that the showers are really good; the water pressure was excellent.

It's designed by a prison architect so prepare to live in noisy messy prison. I lived in Campsy House which was very quiet compared to the usual Murano experience. However, the cost is way too high considering how terrible atmosphere there is and how small and basic the room is (single bed, s*** mattress, can't open window more than two inches to air the room).

Genuinely great for social life and meeting people, and plenty of facilities including an amazon locker, 24 hour security guard & spare key retrieval, and good common spaces with computers to work and sofas/TVs to chill. BUT, white goods and showers fail constantly and are arguably unsafe, contractors/inspectors come into your flat at random times without warning, the heating never works, the WiFi is pretty patchy at times, the laundry machines often break, or take your money, or don't wash/dry your things properly, and the management will basically do anything to get as much money out of you as they can. The overall design of the place is pretty lifeless and if you live facing the main street then all the student street noise is captured and bounced off the buildings to amplify it. Have heard stories of showers/boilers still remaining unfixed since September. Some flats have been renovated and have cleaners, while some haven't and have no cleaners, and yet are charged the same rate.

This space is too short to write a proper review. Check out Google Reviews of this place. ignore: (kind of ridiculous that they need an email address to check that you are human. every amateur programmer can make a bot that uses mail addresses.)

Found the system unfair as newly renovated flats were the same price as the old shabby ones and it was just luck which one you would get. Good place to socialise and meet people though.

Could do with some refurbishment and certainly doesn't come with double beds or ensuites but provides the best social experience you could want. The centre of all social activities and the place to make the best pals. Definitely go for large flats... in better condition and more people to get along with.
