The rooms and kitchen have tons of storage and are big for a student accommodation. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms and kitchens aren't cleaned but the rest of the building is and is very clean. Its really close to the unis and the center of Glasgow.

Buchanan view is an exceptional place to live for the money you pay. It is a very clean and well kept building with a nice size room and lovely kitchen which has just been redone. The staff are super friendly and are always willing to help no matter the time or situation. Any problems have been dealt with pretty quickly. It is overall a lovely addition to the university experience.

Buchanan View is one of the best student accommodations, I would suggest, one, it is quite within the reach/proximity of unis like Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian, two, closer to the city centre, three, very economical(being a student, I consider this one of the top most priorities), four, the management is quite proactive and helpful.

Buchanan view is in a good, safe location within walking distance of GCU, Strathclyde and colleges. It is also close to shops and nightlife. The rooms are quite big with lots of storage (under bed too) and an ensuite and the flat is always nice and warm. The new kitchens are lovely with lots of storage space and are good for socialising! The staff are really helpful and approachable! Booked again for next year with my friends made here this year :)

Very well maintained block of flats outside and in. However, i moved into an unclean bathroom, with a window with no curtains and a leak from the ceiling in the kitchen which after 7 months of staying here, still hasnt been fixed. Other than that, it’s a nice flat with nice staff in the reception.

This property has spacious rooms and bathroom. Kitchen is also good. It has all the Amenities that a student requires. The best part about the property Is that it is very close to the city centre, literally 10 minutes away. If you are lucky enough to get the room on the top most floor, you get the very beautiful view of the city.

Miles off the standards compared to week-1. Didn't resolve issues at pool table for months even after lodging complaints for weeks. Took 3-4 months to replace refrigerator. Receptionists duck the complaints lodged by saying to wear a mask. Received racist/inappropriate comments when requested a help. When requested for an apology they didn't even get back to it. Barge into your room for checking when you are sleeping or out somewhere. In short tricked us with the false views and perceptions of maintainence during the early week.

Loads of storage especially under bed. Staff are lovely too and will help literally 24/7. Sad about the price increase next year but I’m staying again in the same room. Kitchens are amazing

I have just moved in as an international student and the management has been below par. Despite completing my induction online in advance and arriving at the set time I had allocated, I could not get into the property and had to get a fellow student to use their key card to let me in. Upon arrival, my key and induction pack was not prepared and the usage of the key was not explained to me. I again, had to ask a student to help me. I was told that it would be safe for me to quarantine within my room in the building, but assistance was poor. I ordered food online to be delivered, only for the food to not be accepted on my behalf and subsequently resulting in me having to reorder and leave my room to fetch the delivery. I went down to the reception to enquire about my covid test having been delivered and was only told then that I was not permitted to leave my room. I was advised instead to email the reception about deliveries. Emails were not responded to in a timely manner.

Everything that they promised would be provided was there and they were of very good quality. Some key things were. 1. New mattress cover, cleaned rooms, lots of storage space including underbed storage that can accommodate 2 big suitcases, good lighting, furniture. Very fast wifi, ethernet port. 2. A good kitchen with facilities like oven, toaster, kettle, cleaning items, iron and stand, vacuum cleaner etc. (all being good quality products). 3. Very friendly staff. The flats are accessed with a unique key card so no one can get into your room without your key card and so there's privacy and safety. Rent is paid monthly which is also good. 4. The best thing is how close everything is. Strathclyde University, Glasgow Cathedral, city centre and also many other student accommodations. Everything is within a walking distance. 5. The common area has pool, foosball, TV, Playstation etc. A few friends who share flat told me how they wished they booked an ensuite here earlier instead.

Buchanan View is a really good place to stay. The staff are always helpful, they take time to get to know their residents and always say hello whenever you're walking past. They go above and beyond to resolve any issues whether it be about the halls of residence or room mates or any maintenance issues which get resolved very quickly, sometimes within the hour on some occasions and I have been really pleased with my interactions with staff here and would highly recommend Buchanan View and give it a ten out of ten!

Worst student accommodation in Glasgow, paper-thin walls with no noise cancellation and located right behind the M8 motorway. Rude staff, rude people and with all honestly it's been the worst place I've ever lived in my life. I wouldn't stay there even if the rent was free or even if they paid me to.

I stayed in Buchanan View for my second year. In my application I stated that I would like to be placed with people the same age/ year of study as me. However I got placed with people who were complete opposite of me (doing postgrad etc) and they were all from the same country making me the odd one out. I asked to switch flats as the flatmates I was currently with did not interact with me whatsoever and it was making my halls experience very lonely, however did this not happen. I did not make a single friend at buchanan view for this reason. Furthermore, I got an early release due to COVID-19 and found it extremely hard to get a refund for the rent I paid in advance (in fact it has now been 4 months since vacating the premises and I have still not gotten anywhere) Of course, this is only my personal experience. On a positive note, I will say that the staff at reception and the maintenance team were always super friendly.

It’s also perfect location to the city centre! Having lived in Foundry Courtyard the last year it really made me appreciate buchanan view even more! I only recommend buchanan view!!

It was a wonderful experience and without doubt, in terms of quality-cost, one of the best accommodation someone can ever find in Glasgow.

I had a good year here with friends I moved in with from last year. It was great having access to maintenance so easily and always having someone in reception. Being close to uni was great. Sometimes security wasn't great as my boyfriends bike got stolen but other than that it was a secure place to stay. The constant maintenance was sometimes quite disruptive.

The accomodation is great, my experience both with the other students was great and the staff,especially the night one's were really helpful with everything when I arrived. The only thing that I don't like is the laundry and the app circuit that comes with it. It is a good first year location to stay.

Really like the new girl can’t remember her name sorry- hopefully she will be there next year ;) facilities are great and I can’t wait to see what the common room is going to look like. They have a great rebooker offers every year too. See you all next year!

Buchanan view is just 5 minutes walk from GCU and only 10 minutes walk to Buchanan Galleries, making it an ideal place to stay. Plus with double beds and en-suite facilities, I feel this is a great alternative to Caledonian Court - the university’s own halls of residence.

Not value for money at all. £122+ per week. The fact that the payments come out in a minimum of 8 payments meant that a lot of us couldn't barely afford it because £600+ was coming out of our accounts at once. If you want us to live there for 10 months, charge us monthly. Not very good when dealing with complaints. My flat mate was stealing from me but when we went to complain they did nothing about it. Also the fact that Buchanan View is a non-smoking accommodation but everyone smoked in the flats which was more that disrespectful to the other students living there. And again, when a complaint was made, nothing was done about it. The fact the rent is so high yet we have to pay for a laundry service at £4.50 per every wash and dry. The point that this is a student accommodation means that you know that we have limited funds and you are just making it harder. I thought the staff at Buchanan View were lovely people but they could have done a better job at doing their jobs.

It has overall been good, although due to changes in staff team meant that the staff weren't familiar with the premises and additional training needs to be provided with staff who are new to the job.
