There is a horrible mouse infestation at Liberty which despite being reported to the reception multiple times nothing was ever done about it. I ended up seeing the mouse 10 times, And I heard reports of mice on other floors. This made me unable to cook In my own kitchen. This is plainly unacceptable for a business charging a high premium. Poor value for money in comparison to other halls. There is no proper place to sit and socialise apart from a cramped kitchen and no one stays there as it smells and is bland and emotionless. There is 9 people to a kitchen which is plainly too much. The decor is outdated, the bathrooms are tiny. Staff are alright and polite with good security and are easy to talk to. I like how they integrate and interact with the students by putting out food and other treats on special days. But much better cheaper alternatives which are modern and have better facilities with gyms and cinema rooms which Liberty fail to offer. It is not the nicest place to live and is very uninspiring. Please sort out the mice infestation for future residents. Best wishes

I have been studying abroad since 2001 (more than 15 years), I have not seen such a clean, tidy, decent place for a student to stay as Liberty Living. One more thing I was really impressive is the management style here which was reflected on staff and the way where they treated me well. The reception staff were very nice and highly cooperative. It is really amazing place if you want an enjoyable stay.

I lived there for my exchange term (strathclyde). The staff is very helpful and there is always one at the reception. Even when i lost my keys the just opend the door (in my old accommodation i had to pay for that). A few events at the reception, when they bake cake your offer fruits are also very nice. The accommodation is at the heart of Glasgow. 1 minute to Buchanan street, tesco and sainsburys right at the entrance. The subway is 5 minutes away so you can basically travel to the westend rather quick. I have to say when i got declined for on campus housing i was kind of disappointed but after the term i think liberty house is way better and near to the campus so you will not miss a thing. If I would do it again, I would definitely apply for a room at liberty. And during my stay it was all very clean, including the basement, i cant imagine where the other guy saw a mouse.
