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.


  • 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 can have discounted membership of UK's finest University Sports facilities
  • Support of University Student Support Services via the Residence Life team
  • 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
