The University of Glasgow has announced that some initiatives will be taken to support students struggling to find accommodation, while the BBC received an email from the university advising students to drop out or suspend education.
Students were advised in the email not to enroll at the university or even come to Glasgow without arranging a place to stay.
Glasgow University claimed that the need for dormitories is always above the capacities both in Glasgow and throughout the island, and that they have increased their capacity by 25 percent at the beginning of the term.
Students who cannot find accommodation in Scotland were advised to drop out of school.
The university also shared that the availability of accommodation in the city fell behind the demand and that they were in talks with local administrators to solve the problem.

“They don’t care about us and our education. There are many students who are homeless and have nowhere to go,” said Chadwick-Patel. said.
Chadwick-Patel urged the university and the Scottish government to address student accommodation and build more dormitories.
