The Halls at Strathclyde are generally an individual bedroom with either an en suite or shared bathroom, all have a shared living room and kitchen with your flatmates. The advantages of halls are that if there are any problems with things in your flat you can easiely report them and get them fixed, a cleaning for some areas of the flat is often included in your rent and you're on campus or so close it will never take you long to get to class.
