Excellent location, facilities, and staff. Would highly recommend. :) The building is only four(!!) minutes away from the University of Glasgow's campus by foot, six minutes away from a train station, and right next to multiple general stores (Tesco, Sainsbury), which all makes student life very easy. The flats themselves are well-furnished, with heating and thick walls that allow for cozy studying. The ensuite bathrooms are also very spacious, which is a plus. My favorite thing about the room accommodations is simply how quiet they are, both in the day and at night. Even without needing headphones, it's far quieter inside my room than the UofG library--which is PERFECT for postgraduate studying. I should also mention the very pleasant staff and students. This is a student-only dorm, so it's very easy to make friends and build connections with other folks attending UofG. The staff is also very kind, compassionate, and quick to respond to issues.

Very lovely accommodation, with very friendly and helpful staffs. Great location with the view of the Kelvingrove Art and Gallery Museum right in front of you! And most important is: it is literally just 7 mins walk from the UofG campus!!!

The location is incredible. A short walk to the uni, 2 lidls 10 mins away in either direction, the tesco downstairs, and, if lucky, views of the museum from your window. The staff have always been incredibly helpful and friendly. I didn't have luck with flatmates, but that's not on KH, and luckily, the rooms are big enough to provide ample sanctuary. The windows are also great, a rarity in student accom. They can open really wide to get a breeze in or clear out smells. Also, you're close to bus stops for three of the most useful buses in Glasgow; the 2, the 3, & the 77. The main frustrating thing about the rooms is storage space. There are no drawers, just awkward & strange shelves under the desk, and one higher up. The rooms were recently renovated and the new bed storage is a nightmare to access. The old ones were metal frames that you could easily stow things under, plus 2 drawers. The new ones need wooden boards under the mattress lifted Every Single Time you want access. Ugh.

The staff was very welcoming. Living facilities near the apartment are convenient, downstairs is a Tesco supermarket, there are also a variety of restaurants around. The apartment is diagonally opposite Kevin Grove Art Museum.

Great location, easy access to both city centre and West End. Though shocking increase of price lately. Super nice and friendly management team of Gillian, Marc and David, who are always here to help and respond to tenants’ requests promptly. Gillian in particular has come up with some brilliant ideas and organised excellent on-site events, which helps a lot during such tough time. She’s also the most responsible staff I’ve ever seen. That girl deserves a raise!

Kelvingrove house is located in the heart of the West end and is the perfect place to live as a student as you have so many pubs, bars, restaurants just on your doorstep. The staff are so friendly and are always on hand if you need any help or have any questions. The free gym is also a great addition to the building. Highly recommend.

The staff are friendly and the location is great, it is also good value for money considering how close it is to the University. There are a lot of nice restaurants close by and there are some large supermarkets/transport very close also.

Overall is excellent staff here always want to make some social event (before covid) which is great. However, social space seems to be tight but I hadn't use this much so this doesn't affected me anyway. Wifi sometime run slow I don't know why but it kinda annoying in someway especially when I have to do homework, etc..

As a last minute arrival at Glasgow I was very lucky that they had one cancellation and it was the best decision to move here. The proximity to the university is excellent and the opportunities in the area are perfect for students. The staff are always so lovely and if an issue occurs it is fixed without delay.
