The reception staff (and all staff) are the friendliest people you will meet, they are so welcoming, accomodating and are great at keeping in touch - they would organise parties and pizza nights and make such an effort to help people make friends. I lived in the bronze studio and it was definitely worth the money, the room is bright modern, tidy and has everything you need. The cleaning staff are amazing and do such a good job. The maintenance staff will make sure you have no problems with anything in your flat and will get things fixed quickly. The social spaces are fab if you have friends round or need somewhere to study. I genuinely felt at home staying at Foundry and I would recommend it to anyone!

I can't begin to describe how much I have loved my time here so far! The reception team here genuinely make the living experience and they bend over backwards to not only accommodate you but make you feel like you have a family away from family. I was incredibly hesitant about living in student accommodation as I'm a mature student but I am so glad I made the decision to stay here. Locaton is perfect, the rooms are lovely, the social spaces are clean and accessible and we are regularly treated to gifts and sweets and when lockdown wasn't happening there was a free coffee bar every morning! I have seen some negative reviews and the only thing I feel I can say about them is that if people respected the rules we had such as no candles/open flames and no smoking in rooms then the fire alarms would be few and far between. Ultimately the building itself and the reception team are just spot on and its the best accommodation I could have asked for!

I had a fantastic stay at Foundry Courtyard. The front desk staff, the administrators, the cleaners and the maintenance guy were so friendly, accommodating and helpful. The rooms were well furnished with a decent layout and the social spaces (gym, rec room, laundry, cinema room) were all extremely well taken care of and well furnished as well. It may come across a little more expensive but for the location, the amenities it is actually good value for money.

Studio apartments were disgusting upon arriving, we were promised that it would be ´deep-cleaned´and had heard other stories from a few other people. Constant fire-alarms waking you up in the middle of the night. Frequently without hot water, some staff nice, others seems to constantly make excuses.

Incredibly friendly staff always trying to organise events and meet people. Everyone was lovely and the entire place was very well maintained. They're also adding new facilities and added a quiet study room during my stay, so they're definetly improving

Choosing Foundry Courtyard as my accommodation hostel has been one of the best decisions I made since I got to Glasgow. The warm reception, friendly management team, clean environment, organised events both educational and fun has been a wow experience! Foundry courtyard is really a home away from home

Really enjoyed staying at foundry courtyard. The staff were so nice and helpful. The halls are a bit pricier than others but so so worth paying that bit extra. The building was clean and secure with someone always at reception to greet you. All around a lovely place to stay.

My experience was absolutely great! Whenever I had a problem everyone was eager to help me solve it, every time I went back after a day out I was always greated and I was really amazed by the dedication in remembering all the names of the students! The social activities organized nearly every week were really various so that everyone could enjoy them. I would definitely recommend it

I spent at the Foundry a whole year in a studio flat and that was an incredible experience!! Perfect location to reach the city centre in 5 minutes walk, quiet, but also lots of supermarkets, kebabs, and nice places to eat out. All the staff is extremely caring and nice, lots of activities organised by the same Foundry to keep students active and increase opportunities to socialise (such as bringing an ice cream van during summer time or fruit/veg during stressful exam time - soo much appreciated when your brain is not working) Also great support whenever you need anything. The building is brand new and dynamic. In a nutshell, what are you waiting for, book at the Foundry!! :-)
