Would absolutely thoroughly recommend Murano to anyone coming to Glasgow Uni. Hate to say it, but I feel that in terms of making new friends and getting involved with new social groups out-with my course, living in any other halls would have put me at a genuine disadvantage. Murano is just where everyone was and where everything happened!

Everything breaks all the time, the wifi could be worse and it's impossible to maintain the kitchen tidy, but it's fun

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.)

Murano is definitely the Halls to be at being a fresher, it so sociable and lively. Its Halls so it is obviously not luxury living don't expect that, that is all I have to say.

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.

It's okay but very loud, the wifi almost never works, things break all the time and they will fix it but it's annoying to get staff in your flat 3 times a week.

We didn't have any cleaning in our flat hence the review. Murano is absolute s**te but only people from Murano can say it cause we love it really. You'll meet the best people (people everywhere else are stuck up as f**k) but everything else is lacking tbh. Needs wifi improved; needs common areas in the blocks and needs to be max £80 per week for what you're getting. Hall management wasn't bad but the amount of problems is awful, it once took 8 staff in our kitchen trying to figure out why there was a puddle on the floor and the plumber came at 2am. It's the best place for down to earth + social students, but don't bother if you can afford/are posh enough to be elsewhere.

The halls itself are not worth the money we're paying (as well as as unfair difference in quality, as students in newly rebirbished flats pay the same flat rate), and the facilities in the flats themselves are questionable (including; a cooker from the 1950's, not carbon monoxide detector, little hot water and very little cupboard space). However, as it's the biggest halls for the uni it's very sociable and I've met some really great friends. This is the halls for you if you're more worried about your social life than quality of life.

Murano is amazing for meeting new people, especially during freshers! There's always people out, and I'm in the newly refurbished halls which are very clean and modern- great value for money. The weekly cleaning service is very helpful too, and there's always staff and security in the central services building to help you and make you feel safe.

Murano is absolutely minted; smoke alarms don't work, my building warden is a stoner and my flatmates don't half rate alcohol.

Very basic accommodation with shared facilities, but everything is functional and the social experience is second to none.

The social experience is second to none, the faciliates are clean and pretty much what you'd expect for the price. The staff are (mostly) helpful, save for a few exceptions. Overall, pretty good.

I like the flats personally but I don't particularly like the 25 minute walk to the union/lectures. The door windows are quite fragile so don't kick them.

Awful experience. £425 a month for freezing cold tiny box room in a noisy building. Had a single bed which was rubbish . Flatmatrs weren't the nicest people. Fire alarms at 8am was annoying

A fairly dirty depressing place which is in dire need of some refurbishment (eg oven and carpet). Good for a social life but a good walk away from everything, surrounded by Maryhill so you don't particularly want to be walking home at night.

It's falling apart, doesn't get enough work done on it...just enough to make it acceptable really, we're paying an extortionate amount of money for what we get...and the price is going up next year, and it's too far from the uni. The cleaners are nice though.
