Absolutely loved it here for first year. Met so many great people. It helps that is isn't flats but is actually halls, if you don't get on with people in your kitchen it's easy to move. Staff are very helpful

Class place to live in. A bit dated, but still best experience by a mile.

Cairncross House is quite near the University compared to other Halls and it's also in an area with a lot of pubs and shops and only about 30mins from the city centre by foot. The staff is nice and helpful, the cleaners do they job well. However, I think that the price, as with most Halls, is too expensive. I pay £122 per week for a standard single! Even though on the University website they said it'd be £108 per week!

One thing to bear in mind about Cairncross House is that it isn't flats like the other halls are - each floor has around 40-50 rooms and several kitchens and toilets/showers. You're assigned to a certain kitchen depending on which room you're in. Each floor has laundry facilities and a couple of baths if you fancy something more relaxing than a shower! The kitchens and toilets/showers are cleaned every week and toilet paper is provided, which is great!

Cairncross is the best place for first year students to live. The rooms and kitchens are divided into separate flats, so you are always bumping into people, ideal for freshers week and for the first year as a whole. The location is perfect as well. only 15 minutes from uni, and about 25 minutes walk from city center, which is ideal for all the nights out, saving money on cabs/public transport.

Great place to live if you want to have a big group of friends by the end of it, however the cleaners aren't that good and management sometimes doesn't do their job right e.g. forgetting to buy the whole building toilet paper

These halls are great for making friends as they are so sociable and it's only a short walk to the uni

Needs some updating, quite quiet at times and not if you're into parties!

One of the nicer hall buildings but I found it to be less social than other ones (murano for example). It wasn't very party focussed and I find I didn't make as good friends as people in Murano did. If you don't mind living in a less nice building, go for Murano - it will be worth it for the friends you'll make.

Despite Cairncross being one of the less well known accomodations at glasgow, I really loved my time here. Not the typical layout, which I found allowed me to meet and socialise with many more people, much more easily! Super friendly staff who always say hello. Great start to university life.
