Basic group apartments with slightly more comfortable than usual beds. Not the cleanest dorm setting but if you need supplies to do it yourself, the cleaning staff are easily found taking breaks on the benches.

Caledonian University is my favorite university in Glasgow. Student facilities are great, excellent staff, great libraries and lounge places, no wonder this university was ranked 2nd in the UK for international student satisfaction. I especially love student association building.

The uni is fab and in an excellent location, it's directly across from Buchanan bus station, a 5 minute walk from queen street station and a ten minute walk from central station.

Enjoyed my time here as a mature student and found the course interesting. I would recommend return to study to anyone who wants to change direction. I had be made redundant and found the challenge of going back into education stimulating, interesting and it made it easier to find work.

Although buildings seem modern and nice from exterior, but I didn't see anything special inside. A good thing is that all the buildings of uni are in one place, so students do not need to travel. But that shouldn't be the main benefit of uni
