Postgraduate admissions policy

We are unable to guarantee an offer of accommodation to all Postgraduate students. However, we will use best endeavours to offer you accommodation providing:

  • You are PGT (postgraduate taught) or PGR (postgraduate research), new to study at the University of Glasgow and do not require family accommodation; and
  • Your online accommodation application is received by 31 July in the year of entry to University; and
  • You have met your conditions of study by 25 August in the year of entry to University; and
  • You are applying for accommodation for a full academic session (i.e. September to June or September to September)

Applications submitted after 31 July will still be considered. You are encouraged to apply as early as you can.

NB. If your study period is January to January, room options may be limited and you may be required to move residence in June.

Family / Partner accommodation

The University has only a limited number of flats available to students with families or partners. As a consequence they are in high demand and cannot be guaranteed to those requesting them. Family accommodation will be allocated on a first come, first served basis for applicants meeting the required criteria. We can supply links to local letting agents to assist in your search in the private sector. The Students Representative Council's Advice Centre (SRC) can offer guidance for searching in the private sector.
