Why choose University accommodation?

We realise that these days students have lots of options when it comes to choosing somewhere to stay during their time at Glasgow. However, we believe that for most, staying in University accommodation is the best option.


  • You are guaranteed accommodation if you study at the University full-time*
  • We offer 39 or 52 week contracts not 43 or 44
  • You only get the full "University of Glasgow Experience" by staying in University accommodation; sharing accommodation with students at the same institution, or perhaps even the same course
  • We don’t mix Undergraduates and Postgraduates in the same block
  • You have access to one of the UK's finest University Sports facilities included in your accommodation fees
  • You get 24/7 access to dedicated University support and direct access through Residence staff to University Student Support Services
  • If a change in your circumstances leads you to formally withdraw from your studies, you will not be held liable for the full accommodation contract*
  • A variety of flat and room types at varying costs are available for you to select from

*Subject to terms and conditions
