If you have accepted an unconditional offer of study
Apply for accommodation.
Where possible, please include a mobile telephone when submitting your application. If you do agree to provide this information then we will assume that you agree to us storing this number on our system for ease of contact in the future.
Once your application form has been received by us, you will:
- be informed of your priority category by email;
- be sent an offer of accommodation for the academic session by email, from April onwards (or prior to your date of arrival if session has begun), depending on your category rating.
By the 1st week of September (or prior to your date of arrival if session has begun) you will know the result of your application.
Remember - do not delay in applying!
If you ARE offered University accommodation
You will be sent an offer of occupancy by the Allocations Section within Residential Services. To confirm your booking, a non-refundable prepayment of £450 must be paid at the time of your acceptance of occupancy. N.B. All offers have a deadline date, if we do not accept the offer by the deadline date, this may result in your offer being withdrawn.
All residence contracts are legally binding. Should a student fail to remain in occupancy for the Period of the Contract (whether voluntarily or through a termination of the student’s occupancy by the University due to the student’s breach of discipline or otherwise) liability for payment of the Fees for the remainder of the Period of the Contract will remain unless prior to the expiry of the Period of the Contract the Room is occupied by another student, who is a Glasgow University registered student and not currently living in a residence, in which event, the student’s liability for fees will cease on the date on which such other student takes occupation of the Room. For the avoidance of any doubt, any prepayment by the student will be retained by the University and will not be refunded to the student.
In general, requests for room transfers will not be considered until after week four of semester one.
If you are NOT offered University accommodation
You should apply for help in seeking private accommodation.
If you live within easy commuting distance of the University, you may wish to be placed on the waiting list for University accommodation. Places do become available from late September onwards.
If you have any concerns or problems with seeking accommodation, you should contact us.
