Temporary accommodation

main content

If you need accommodation for a few nights when you first arrive in Glasgow, book in advance. There will be thousands of students arriving in the city within a few days so hostels and private halls fill up quickly.

If you book university accommodation, you will be sent information on when to arrive. Similarly, if you arrange accommodation privately, you will be given a date when your contract starts. You will not be able to access your accommodation until the date specified, so if you plan to arrive early, book temporary accommodation for a few nights. The same advice applies if you are planning to arrange accommodation once you arrive in Glasgow.
