Even if they say something else this is a 90% chinese student accomodation, which mean 2 things: Probably you wont make any friends and the kitchen/living room is gonna be a mess always, you cannot even fight because they just dont talk to you and speak in mandarin between each other. On the other hand, location is perfect, the room is always warm in winter and the building is quite new so everything looks nice.

Hello,

Our demographic is 60% international (Asian) students and the rest being made up of American, Canadian and European. We do not have 90% Chinese students. 

We are predominantly 6 bed shared cluster flats. You have your own bedroom, bathroom and share a large kitchen. As with any shared accommodation you have to work closesly with any flat mates to make sure thats all living areas are kept clean and tidy and to a standard that suits everyone. We also have studio flats if you do not feel comfortable living in a shared accommodation.

We are within a 5-8 minute walk of Glasgow University as well as being very close to all transport links, shops, cafe's etc.

We are a bright, modern, homely feeling site.

There are some things I absolutely love about living here and a few minor irks, but that's the deal with any living establishment. The absolute positives. The staff are amazing! all of them. The location is absolutely perfect. less than 5 minute walk to Kelvin hall, and maybe 10-15 to library, depending on how fast you walk. Everything is included in a fair and decent price, only negative is there's only 2 washers and dryers ea. and they laundry can at time be a little backed up. (not often though) The 'negatives' Common areas can get really noisy sometimes, and on the lower levels it's really annoying when at 2 am someone is outside drunk yelling & laughing super loud. Social areas are for being social but not everyone in the building wants to party(doesn't happen every weekend, but has happened a few times)but that's mostly 18 yo being 18 yo's. Only downside is no authoritative figures to control when pass an acceptable time However, overall an amazing place to stay! Do recommend

Hello,

Thanks so much for your open and honest feedback. Lots of positives and a few minor irks. On the whole as you say Bridge House is a very well rounded place to stay. Now and again students will be students and have use of the social areas to party. Unfortunately this is all part and parcel of student life. I'm glad it is only now and again and not bothering you often. If at any point you feel the noise levels are unacceptable please call our out of office hours mobile number which is displayed on the wall at the office. One of our student wardens will assist you in dealing with the noise. 

We are really glad that you are enjoying your stay with us and we hope that you re book if you are still in study for 2019/20.

Many Thanks 

Col

This is the great accommodation I have ever chosen. Great environment, great management. One the perfect thing is that you will feel so warm in your room in the winter even you turn off the heating radiator.

if you are not a chinese student you will have a harder time to actually be social in this dorm - even though the dorms offer great monthly/weekly socials, few people actually go and since the majority is chinese and they tend to not mingle with non-chinese. which is sad but so far i have not made any friends. cleaning: there is a nice cleaning lady cleaning the common spaces on the ground floor - flawless. but for your shared kitchen and shared hallways you and your flatmates are responsible, which can be a source of conflict if your flatmates don't (like to) clean. otherwise, staff is absolutely great, i will miss them when i move out.

Hello,

Thanks for your feedback. Bridge House is currently 60% Chinese students with a then mixture of American, European/British and Canadian. We feel we have a great mixture of students. We offer daily, weekly and monthly social events with lots of giveaways to help all students interact and enjoy their stay here at Bridge House. 

Is there anything more you feel we can do on site to help you interact more and make friends? Please use our suggestion box at reception to feed any ideas back to us. 

The full building is in perfect condition and is extremely clean as you mentioned. Tracey our Housekeeper loves interacting with all our students as well as Charlene our Customer Services advisor and Col the Accommodation Manager. We also have 5 Student Wardens and a Maintenance Operative for the site. 

The 6 bed cluster flats cleanliness like any other flat or HMO is the responsibily of all students living there to keep clean and tidy. We do have a recommended cleaning company that you can pay directly to clean your flat. If you would ltheir contact details please contact Col or Charlene in the office. 

We love that you think we are great staff and greatly appreciate your feedback.

Thanks 

Col Nicholson
