Strathclyde accommodation


Feel at home in Glasgow

Studying in a new country is an exciting experience. You can live on the University of Strathclyde's city-centre campus. Staying here will help you settle into life away from home and make new friends from around the world.

While you are an International Study Centre student you can choose to live in a room in University-managed accommodation. You also have the option to arrange your own accommodation.

Why live in University-managed accommodation?

Each hall of residence is only a few minutes’ walk from the International Study Centre and main University buildings. They all offer excellent access to facilities. These include the library, Students’ Union and the Sports Centre. Shops and cafes on campus and in the city centre are within easy reach.

All the accommodation is self-catering with free internet access in all rooms. Each hall has a dedicated on-site management team. And a night porter is available outside office hours. You can join in social events, from traditional Scottish celebrations to international festivals.
