Top notch residents and staff, large light and open rooms which mostly have a great view. No common rooms provided other than laundry and smoking areas but parties held so regularly that other flats become the social areas. Overall great experience, would recommend!

I rebooked my room for a second academic year at Firhill Court because I loved my experience so much! The staff are so friendly and inviting to all new students. I really feel that this has added to my amazing experience at this accommodation because staff go above and beyond their job description to keep students happy. I am really grateful for all of the information and continuous support they provide. No request is too much and I never feel unwelcome. Additionally, the accommodation facilities are excellent value for money and I was very impressed by the kitchen/living room area. Because I have a car, the free parking with a locked gate has been a real plus- although it only takes 10 to 15 minutes to walk to three main shops. I also have a view of the canal from my room which makes it feel like I am away from all of the busyness of the city, without being far away. Communal areas are always kept clean and I really cannot recommend Firhill Court enough!

Terrible student accommodation- tiny bathrooms, lots of problems with toilets, TV doesn't work, I lived above bin area which was always overflowing so cant open window. Far better alternatives.

Overall good accommodation, but don't expect to get a bigger room if you choose the 'premium' ones! There is a price mis-match because of this. There are no social areas, aside from a communal smoking area. The WiFi services provided are mostly reliable, although there is a limit of two devices unless you want to pay more. The location is atrocious due to the distance from the university or nearby shops, definitely bring a car if you're going to live here. The maintenance of services and cleaning is always immediate and very prompt, the staff are also always on hand to help.

The area and the price being demanded don't match up. The internet is decent but you have to pay more if you want it to be fast, and even so it's throttled in the evenings. There's no common room whatsoever, and they don't have enough chairs for all the occupants of the flat in the kitchens. There are window restrictors on all of the windows, so it frequently gets too warm on hot days. Overall, if I was paying half of what I'm paying, I'd be reasonably happy, but overall the value for money is poor.

Great looking halls with lovely people, terribly managed by a team / owner clearly looking to extract as much profit as possible.

I'm in block D, and apparently they put grads and international students there, so it tends to be quieter. That's not really what I wanted from halls, if I wanted quiet I'd have looked into a flat share. En suite is excellent, but not too easy to keep clean. Shower curtain was filthy when I arrived, reported it 3 times before it was changed. Kitchen/shared room is good. There's a TV and 2 couches. Only problem is our oven doesn't work very well and although we've reported it they aren't fixing it. Management / overseers or whatever you wanna call them are very friendly in person but our flat finds their emails can be a bit cheeky. We're also really bothered by how often they check our flat, check out rooms, our water, fire checks, showing folk etc and they come in without knocking. Sometimes it's a guy, and this makes some of the girls (who requested a female only room) uncomfortable. One of my flatmates nearly got caught coming out the shower by an inspection, no knock first.

Everything is lovely and clean. The view is quite nice, and the kitchen looks out on the Firhill Stadium. It's quite a walk to campus, so make sure you never sleep in, or that you have a good grasp of the Murano bus schedule. The kitchen is quite nice in our flat, although we're a little pressed for space in the fridge. The management team are great - they can help you out with pretty much anything you need, so go and talk to them (the office does close early, so if you have late lectures I wouldn't count on coming home and then heading to the office). There's no cleaning service - probably better that way, as we'd send them into fits at the sight of our apartment on some nights. There are no common areas besides the kitchen, but if you're okay with a packed space you're gonna be fine. There was 10 of us in a 4-person kitchen one night, and it gets rather warm, and loud, but it's fun. I'm not having any problems with the free Internet so far - it's def better than campus Internet.

Internet is really bad so I ended up paying for a better connection which is much better.

Rooms nice and spacious, but no common room for block. Expensive laundry facilities. Not provided with kitchen accessories (not even a bin..) Front desk generally helpful (when actually open)

The room itself is absolutely lovely: so much nicer than I was expecting! We were provided with the general facilities in the rooms such as a desk, wardrobe, shelves etc. It's a 3/4 sized bed as well, so a small double, The en-suite is small but it does the job, just be careful as there isn't a brilliant amount of space to store things. The kitchen is lovely as well, again, so much nicer than I'd thought it would be. Depending on the size of your flat (I'm in a six person) you will get either one or two fridge freezers and what should be enough cupboard space to meet your requirements. The location of the residence could be better. It's a 20-25 minute walk depending on what roads you take and how fast you walk, whereas some of the accommodation is only 5 minutes away. The nearest shops are a Tesco Express (10 minutes away) and a Cooperative (nearer 15-20 minutes away). We're not brilliantly social people here, most people seem to keep themselves to themselves.

My room is the best part. There is no social space but can make do with having to socialise in the kitchen.

Firhill has really nice rooms and is generally well equipped and modern looking, with each flat having its own licensed TV. However, with no cleaning, it is really down to whoever is living in the flat to keep it in an inhabitable condition. So probably here more than even more than most halls, your experience really depends quite heavily on who your flatmates are. As for location, it could be a lot better but it's no worse than any of the other UofG halls, really. Big Tesco and Lidl nearby, about a 20-25 minute walk from the Uni. As far as halls go, Firhill really is rather good. But there comes a time I think when you realise the importance of the 'As far as halls go' part of that.
