The University appreciates that moving away from home can be a daunting prospect and therefore provides a priority for all students in their first year of study for accommodation, as long as applications are received by the advertised date. Priority extends to one offer of accommodation.
All first year students, from any location, will normally be allocated a single study bedroom in a University residence (this may be on or off campus).
Applications should be made online via the university portal and full instructions will be sent from the Admissions Office once your place to study is unconditional firm.
New Undergraduate Nurses

For 2015/16 the property that will be available is Union Street Development, located off campus in the city of Stirling. This property is ideally located for nursing students as it gives easier access to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, as well as giving parking should students require it.

These dates indicate your contract period, so please ensure you arrange your travel plans accordingly.
All accommodation for new undergraduates is offered on a 37/38/42 week let basis for session 2015/16, meaning that students can continue to occupy their rooms over the Christmas vacation period.
If specified accommodation is full, we will offer alternative University accommodation. If all University accommodation is fully booked, we can provide information on private rentals within Stirling.
On-campus residences are occupied predominantly by students in their first year of study and therefore mature students may wish to contact Accommodation Services for alternative options.
First Year students are encouraged to become involved in the Social Committees. These committees are responsible, with the Accommodation Liaison Students, for organising social events for the residents. Involvement is extremely fulfilling, and although the work never exceeds a few hours a week, you can gain invaluable experience in representing students, team working and organising events.
