Stayed here for my first year and its a great accommodation to stay in. The location is close to everything with just a quick walk to the city centre, very clean and cleaning staff are always close by, clean and spacious rooms, access to WiFi, lots of social rooms and the staff are always very cheerful and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here for any new students looking for somewhere to live during their studies.
Really enjoyed my time at collegelands, I found the room bedroom to be nice and clean when I got there and a good space to live. The kitchen/living area was really spacious and nice. However for the price you pay for the room, having bare minimum kitchen appliances (no kettle/toaster/ brush/ hoover) as well as various issues with water and electricity was disappointing- especially when looking at the facilities offered in other similarly priced private halls. However overall I really enjoyed the experience of living there
There was a lot of maintenance problems with water so I wasn’t impressed with the amount of times we went without running water. It was very unhygienic and a risk to our health. The Wi-fi has not always been reliable, there have been a number of times it has failed making accessing university online classes nearly impossible. Won’t be recommending this Accomodation to anyone in the future.
On the whole this accommodation has been liveable, however on multiple occasions there has been water outages and bad accommodation management, lack of proper recycling and the mail collection system is often confusing there’s also no adequate bike storage facilities and some have had there bikes stolen due to this. Despite these setbacks it’s in a very convenient location, the staff have been accommodating and understanding but I wouldn’t recommend someone live here unless they’re completely out of options.
Stayed here from Sep 2020- Don't Bother. Noisy neighbours, parties during pandemic till 5am, unhelpful security, stolen parcels, clogged drains full of hair and drawers full of rotting food on move in. Broken chairs, tabletops and freezer drawers. Loud water feature that woke us at 6am. cracked and stained walls that i was warned by maintenance could actually collapse into the hallway without proper work, no electricity, wifi or running water in showers, sinks, toilets, laundry etc for days on end over weeks and weeks that meant no washing or eating or drinking during a pandemic. Lifts broken for months at a time without repair. Burst pipe that threatened to emergency move us out, leaving our belongings to be flooded, at 2am... TWICE. All around, a mess.
The accommodation is located in a great place. A short walk to pretty much everything in glasgow city centre. However, maintenance issues seem to take a while to be attended to. Furthermore, postage systems are quite unsafe.
Collegelands has been a wonderful place to stay over this year. Wonderfully kind and friendly staff. in a good location close to the rain station and only a hand full of minutes walk to all commodities you would hope for.
Don't stay at Collegelands. I stayed from Sep 2020. Clogged masses of hair in all the drains, rotten food left from previous residents in drawers on arrival, stains and cracks all over the walls, broken chairs, stolen parcels, a burst water pipe that threatened to mean we had to emergency vacate the building twice, a noisy water feature outside that woke us up at 6am, broken drawers in the freezer, broken laundry machines, constant police visits for the noisy inhabitants of other flats that wanted to party through a pandemic, and my favourite of all, the days upon days without wifi, lighting, or running water in the toilets, sinks or showers in the middle of a pandemic that saw students left without safe clean water to drink, anywhere to relieve themselves, any way to clean themselves or their dishes, and made everyone go out to the nearby aldi or morrisons and buy water just to be able to cook pasta. This was in three months total.
When we moved in my flatmates told me their room had not been cleaned. As I moved in a month later than them I had found my room was the same as theirs ; there was an old sock in the wardrobe and the room had generally gathered up dirt and dust. Obviously because of covid, social spaces etc were not an option.
Collegelands is a Great place to stay that provides good value for money. In terms of location, it’s really close to uni of strathclyde and at a 10 min walk to the city centre. The social spaces are nice, the personnel is helpful. I am rebooking my room for next year here
Good location, nice receptionist. Bad social experience, a lot of noisy nights trough the week and weekends. Lot's of fire alarms. Awful management about gym which is really annoying. Apart from that it is been okay, whenever I had a problem I got help from staff.
