This accomodation is the best since they make you feel like home. The team there is very helpful especially Ali who goes out of his way for the students. It also strategically located close to the subway and a Tesco which makes living so much easier.

The flat is located in the city centre, surrounded by supermarkets, restaurants and bars, and only one minute to the subway station, making life very convenient. If you have a room facing the Clyde river, you can also see the river. The manager is very welcoming and friendly and you can go to him if you need any help. The studios are not all exactly the same type, my room had a large bathroom and is very clean, while the bed is very soft and comfortable. I am very satisfied with my room and the flat and most importantly the rent was not too expensive!

My second year staying here, pretty poggers in general. Very nice modern rooms with pretty competitive pricing for a studio in the city center and easy to get to everything you need. Normally takes around 20 minutes on subway to get to UofG campus but personal speedrun record was around 13 minutes or so. Building is regularly cleaned and Ali the property manager is an absolute king. There are common rooms on all floors of the building and since the location is right in the city center it is easy to get to all the pubs and clubs if that’s your thing. But if you are like me who prefers not to touch grass for an extended period of time then studios here are a perfect place to shut yourself in. Internet:100Mbps as advertised, should be enough for most people, if you have a lot of IoT devices I highly recommend getting your own router because if you share anything on the Glide network the entire building will be able to see that. Might consider booking again next year if my plans allow.

I was very lucky to stay at Riverside in my first year. The room is nice and flatmates at Riverside are pretty friendly. Above all, the location is simply superb right in the middle of city center with the travelling time to school being only 15 minutes in total via subway. …

I absolutely loved my time at Riverside. The building was lovely and quiet but with lots of opportunities to socialise with the other students. My room was nice and spacious with new and clean facilities. The staff were lovely and friendly. The manager Ali, was amazing in helping me both move in and move out of my room. Its very hard to find affordable studios so this was perfect. Would definitely recommend!

Ali is the nicest person and he will for sure try his best to sort out all the problems for you. His ability to manage the whole building is just superb and no matter how bad your day was, seeing him and catching up with him will always put a smile in your face. The accomodation out of all the studios in glasgow(even better than Vita or Yugo) has the best toilet, it's modern with marble floor. The kitchen's extractor makes no noise at all but it does its job perfectly so you can cook in a silent environment. The bed has light switches as well so you dont have to walk all the way to the corridor to turn off the room's light so it's a convenient design. The room generally is very warm and I dont even have to turn on the heater at all throughout the whole year. The river clyde view is simply one of the best views in glasgow throughout the four seasons. Location wise it's good for glasgow university students as it is right next to subway station and you have great access to many bus lines.

I don't think I could have found any better accommodation than Riverside Glasgow. Firstly, the location is excellent. Buchanan bus station, Glasgow central station, Glasgow Queens station and hillhead subway station all are within walking distance. Tesco us just across the road and all other shops are within arms length. Secondly, property manager Ali is extremely helpful, one can rely on him for any issue. And finally, during my stay I had the best neighbors who became good friends over the time. I totally enjoyed my stay at Riverside.

Staying at Riverside, Glasgow was a very pleasant experience for me..This is a calm,clean and safe place for students who are looking for private kitchen and ensuite rooms.. Building is well maintained and good quality room heaters and kitchen equipment are provided.. Manager Ali is a very helpful person who understands your needs and support was provided whenever needed.. I had to end the contract prematurely due to personal reasons .. However checkout process was smooth due to support provided by Ali..I strongly recommend Riverside for students looking for studios with private kitchen..

My time spent at Riverside house was lovely. The location is right in the center of Glasgow, almost on Buchanan Street which is perfect. My room was spacious, modern and clean and the wifi was strong. During Covid, the staff went to many lengths to ensure we were all safe. Ali who is on reception is great, always a friendly face to chat to and would do anything to help you out. I would definately recommend staying at Riverside House.

Giving 4 stars because i had some issues with my room (heater was broken, leaks in my bathroom etc..) but i guess it was just the room that was given to me unfortunately.

The on site management staff, especially Ali are fantastic, always there to help. The building is in a great location right in the city center close to shops and the main train station. The main issue with Riverside is the Company operating the building. During covid they did not provide proper support such as refunds for less amenities provided, staff time on-site etc. also the front door has been intermittently broken for the past week which has been reported numerous times but not properly fixed.

This was my first time staying at Riverside and I could not have asked for a better place to live. I am a mature student and did not have any issues. Ali was awesome. Anything that we needed he was there to help even if we just needed someone to talk to. The Covid-19 lockdown was hard on many of the students, but everything in our building ran smooth and if there was an issue he was on the case even if it was 3 am. I would recommend this student accommodations to anyone.

During the year I have been able to compare with my friends' accommodation and I am very happy to have chosen this one. Riverside is really very well placed (Central Station, shops ..), always very clean, rooms are really comfortable and in general the accommodation is pretty quiet. I plan to stay next year for all these reasons but mostly because of Ali, he is always available and helps us a lot. I know that if he's here I won't have any problem about anything.

I've enjoyed my year here, I really like my studio and I was able to make my room feel very comfortable. I've generally gotten along with my housemates very well and I've gotten along with staff well too. Everyone has been kind, friendly and respectful and generally the handling of measures needing to be taken due to the pandemic has gone swiftly. Being right by the city centre has been really convenient and the experience overall has been good.
