Study with us Accommodation

Accommodation in Glasgow remains in high demand ahead of academic year 2023-24.

Places in University accommodation are limited and consist of a range of room types, both on and off campus. 

If your home address is within a 25-mile radius of the Strathclyde campus, you can still apply but we are unlikely to be able to offer you a place in University accommodation.   Exceptions will apply to applicants with extenuating circumstances and those with SIMD Quintile 1 and 2 home postcodes.

Applications for accommodation

Applications for accommodation for September 2023 entry will open on 18 April 2023.

Applications for accommodation must be submitted online by the following dates to be considered for an offer of accommodation. Applications received after the deadline dates will be held in our University files for future consideration for term 2023/24.

Private housing options

Given the unprecedented nature of demand, we encourage all students to consider private housing options across the city of Glasgow and surrounding areas. 

Our Student Union has provided a handy 'house hunting starter guide full of information on other types of accommodation available in the area and guidance to help you apply.

Family accommodation

University accommodation is only suitable for single occupancy.  If you require family accommodation please make use of the guidance provided to help you source alternative accommodation. We recommend that you book your accommodation in advance of travel to Glasgow.
