Living in University halls of residence is a perfect way to settle into university life as it’s the ideal place to make new friends. With so many students in the same place it’s impossible not to meet someone you like.
The University has around 3,500 residential spaces available for its students with approximately a quarter of those designated as best suited for postgraduate students. Providing you have firmly accepted an unconditional offer, or met the conditions of a conditional offer from the University of Glasgow, and have submitted your application for residence before the 22nd August, then you are guaranteed accommodation (please check our admissions policy for full details).
A range of accommodation is available, from self-catering flats to more traditional halls of residence. All residences are furnished with internet access and have fully trained support staff to advise on a wide range of matters. There is also a free SRC Halls to Campus minibus service.
If you prefer to find private accommodation we can also help you in your search and provide any advice needed. You can register online to search our private accommodation database at http://www.glasgowpad.org
How to apply
You can apply for halls of residence by using our online application system. This can be used by all undergraduate, postgraduate and exchange students who have an unconditional or conditional firm offer (UF/CF) of study from the University of Glasgow.
Please note - due to the sheer number of applicants it is not always possible to guarantee your first choice.
