It is unlikely you will find something suitable immediately and we therefore advise you to allow plenty of time to look around. There can be a shortage of good accommodation as students start 'flat hunting' before the start of a new session, in direct competition with every other student as well as the general public.
From 1 May 2006, as part of a Scotland-wide scheme, all private landlords with properties in Glasgow and their agents must be registered with Glasgow City Council, along with details of the properties they let.
