Family accommodation

If you need family accommodation during your studies at Stirling, we have a range of flats just for you and yours. Please note, if you're applying for family accommodation, you can find out more and make a booking by emailing instead of submitting your application through our online portal.

January 2023 accommodation availability

There is no University accommodation available in January 2023 for students arriving with dependents. We would advise you look at private sector accommodation early to ensure you have accommodation booked before you arrive.

Council Tax

Please note, if your husband/wife/partner is a non-student, they may be liable for Council Tax.

Council Tax is a property based tax which is payable to local councils to help fund the cost of services that they provide such as the police and fire service. Most full-time students are normally eligible for Council Tax exemption. In order to satisfy the 'full-time' criteria for council tax exemption you must:

  • Be required to attend University for a period of at least 24 weeks in the academic year
  • Undertake on average at least 21 hours of study, tuition or work experience in each of these weeks

Please refer to your local Council Tax Office for rules relating to Council Tax exemptions.
