Family accommodation

If you need family accommodation during your studies at Stirling, we have a range of two or three-bedroom flats just for you and yours. Find out how to apply.

There is only a limited amount of family accommodation available at any time and this can be in high demand.

To help your plans we will let students know whether we can assist with family accommodation once your application has been received and in advance of term starting. 

If you need any assistance or have questions, please contact us at

Council Tax

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.
