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.

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

If you require support in sourcing accommodation, please contact our Strathclyde ISC Central Student Support Team to enquire about our currently available accommodation options.

Independently-arranged accommodation

You can also find your own long or short-term accommodation. If you are under 18 at the start of your course, and you want to arrange your own accommodation, you will need to provide your address to the Admissions Centre. Students over the age of 18 are also encouraged to provide the Centre with their address details.

An international student from the University of Strathclyde International Study Centre

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."
