    No drinking for under 21's?

    I've been offered a place with a company and I'm likely to end up in Glasgow, unfortunately in the St Luke's and riverside accommodation Information letter it says they don't let under 21's drink in the halls. How strict are they about this?

    Tl;dr: are they strict about the no under 21 drinking rule?

    It's still the same bobo haha, so you'll have no worries there.

    Don't know what the new on campus halls will be like right enough, I'm doubtful of it being totally finished by August if I'm being honest!

    I doubt they will enforce it. In my contract it says that I am not allowed to have any party's or social gatherings in my flat or attend any part's or social gatherings in the halls or they will terminate my lease!!
    The staff at St Lukes have a habit of just barging into your room without knocking, then they get all argumentative when you tell them to **** off. So I would suggest trying to get a room in the new halls...

    As a word or warning, most of the halls are against parties etc as they see it causes damage etc. so they ban such things to try to protect the condition of the halls. Certainly STC some of the managers would have you believe you were staying in their front room and they had a much greater right to dictate your life than a regular uni hall. However some sponsors will side with the college and therefore doing anything that breaks the rules (and being caught) can be treated as a disciplinary offence, you probably wont loose your cadetship over it but it may well help you along the way.


    If they do barge into the room often, either lock the door, or start spending lots of personal time naked and if they then barge in, well they may not do it again.
    you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

    They cannot just barge in to you bedroom's uninvited, they have to be invited in or provide you with a minimum of 24 hours notice that they intend to come in. That notice has to be in writing and they have to specify the reason for entry. The weekly H&S check in the shared portion doesn't really count. Which part of your flat are they barging into, your bedroom or shared areas?

    As ET said, most places are against parties, not just because of damage, but also because of noise and other ASB as not everyone near your flat is having a party. Personally, when I was there if it was on a weekend I never really cared, but if it was during the week then I wasn't a happy bunny.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

    Im sure that they will be able to come in for a whole range of things basically if they suspect you of breaking the rules, but it should still be announced even if its just a knock on the door. cleaners can be different if they say your rooms will be cleaned between x and x time as obviously if they have told you that then its covered

    it does kinda depend on which rooms, when and who is appearing

    It does really dependent on which room they barge in to as Scottish Tenancy Law is very specific on a tenant's right to privacy. If it's the flat as a whole, as in the common areas, then I don't think they can do much as it's officially the bedrooms that you're renting. However, CoG do tend to make their own rules up on the fly so who knows....

    However, getting stroppy and telling the staff to piss off is probably not a good way to go about things, particularly if it is security guys you're shouting at....

    They used to come into the living room to pin notices up all the time which we really didn't mind, but the security guards just walked into our rooms unannounced on more than a few occasions for trivial reasons.

    But this was all last year so could be totally different now...
