After paying your tuition fees, the biggest cost you are likely to face is the cost of somewhere to live.
The University offers accommodation suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates and, to a lesser extent, students with families.
In most cases the rents are all inclusive (e.g. heating and lighting, bed linen, internet access, personal possessions insurance).
The majority of University accommodation is self-catered. There is however one catered hall, Wolfson Hall, offering breakfast and evening meal 7 days a week. Please see below for links to:
Although many students decide to apply for university accommodation until they have got used to the city, there are other options available in the private sector which you might want to look at before you come to Glasgow, or that you might think about after your first year here.
There are quite a number of flats managed by private student accommodation providers in the area around the University as well as the city centre including Unite, Liberty Living and Victoria Halls.
For information on other sources of private accommodation and costs, you can use PAD, a centralised searchable database of private sector accommodation for rent by students from the five higher education institutions in the Glasgow area.
Remember to check what the rental package includes and if the contract dates are suitable for your course. If heating and lighting are not included, you should budget for at least £340 per year.
You will find lots of helpful information about private renting on the SRC website.
