Once you have confirmed your course you will be contacted by the Central Student Support team, who will give you information on available accommodation options and how to book them.

Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from University of Strathclyde International Study Centre.

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

Arrange your room

We recommend contacting the student support team before sourcing your accommodation, please contact Strathclyde International Study Centre Central Student Support Team to enquire about our currently available accommodation options.

The accommodation was good. It was a good experience. I met really good people, nice people from different parts of the world. That is the beauty of international studies because I got to meet people I had never met before. Back home in Nigeria I hardly ever get to meet people from different countries.
