Our accommodation guarantee
We aim to provide warm, comfortable and secure accommodation for eligible new students.
Our on campus accommodation puts you at the heart of student life
All of our accommodation is on campus meaning that you’re within walking distance to the main university buildings, library, computer labs, sports facilities and the Students’ Union. The campus village includes an open study area, Todds Bar, a Santander Bank, launderettes, the village office and the accommodation office based in the Lord Todd complex.
The campus village is also near to the city centre with all its shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, cinemas and other entertainment. Buchanan Street, part of Glasgow’s style mile with over 200 stores, is only a 10 minute walk away.
Your home at Strathclyde
Most of our accommodation is designed as individual flats for students to share. Everyone has their own bedroom (some with private bathrooms), but share a kitchen/living/dining area with some other flatmates.
Murray Hall is the only residence in the Campus Village which is not divided into flats. Instead, 70 students have their own study bedrooms with wash-hand basins and share a large kitchen/living/dining room plus showers and WC facilities located on each floor.
We can’t guarantee that we’ll always be able to offer you your first choice of residence. If we run out of accommodation, we may have to give priority to the students who live furthest away.
Settled, comfortable & safe
Going to University often means that you will be living away from home for the first time. You'll need to find somewhere to stay where you'll feel settled, comfortable and safe and can make new friends to enjoy student life with.
To make your time here as easy and straightforward as possible, we have a dedicated Residence Services team to help you all year round. The team at the Village Office manage all our residences, help with repairs and offer a 24-hour emergency service. The campus village is well lit and patrolled by security wardens
All our residences also have Residence Assistants who are on duty outwith office hours. To make sure that we stay in tune with your needs, students elect representatives at the beginning of term to form Hall Committees to co-ordinate social events and raise issues on your behalf.
Living in halls
Our residences are where you'll make lifelong friendships.
All residences offer an independent lifestyle where you retain your privacy but still have the company of others if you wish. There are opportunities to join in social events, ranging from traditional Scottish celebrations to international events which reflect the cosmopolitan flavour of the residences.
Over 1,700 students from across the globe live in the University's campus village.
