New Undergraduates

At the University of Stirling, we appreciate that moving away from home can be a daunting prospect.

Accommodation Guarantee

We’ll guarantee you an offer of University-managed accommodation in your first year of study if you meet the eligibility criteria. All you need to do is confirm your place at Stirling and apply for accommodation by the advertised date.


Your home away from home

All first year students, from any location, will normally be allocated a single study bedroom in a University residence. The University has 2,800 bed spaces, over 18 locations, and your accommodation may be located either on-campus 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 either conditional or unconditional firm.

These dates indicate your contract period, so please ensure you arrange your travel plans accordingly.

All accommodation for new undergraduates is offered on a 38/42/45 week let basis for session 2018/19, meaning that students can continue to occupy their rooms over the Christmas vacation period.


New Undergraduate Nurses

If you are coming to Stirling in September 2018 to commence a nursing course, we are able to offer you an accommodation contract for the duration of your course, so you would arrive on Saturday 8 September 2018 and stay until Saturday 20 July 2019.


New Integrated Degree Students (Forth Valley College)

If you are coming to Stirling in August 2018 to commence an integrated degree course, your course starts a few weeks earlier than the majority of other new students.  Accommodation is available to you for these extra weeks, so your arrival will be Saturday 25 August 2018.  Accommodation is available for the duration of your course.


What else do I need to know?

On-campus residences are occupied predominantly by students in their first year of study, and so 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.
