Moving in

When the time comes to move into student accommodation here in Stirling we promise you a warm welcome. The majority of students arriving at the University for the first time will move in on our Families’ Weekend in September, but whenever you get here, our friendly team will go out of their way to make you feel at home and point you in the right direction.

Arrival advice

Key collection and arrival time

When advised by Accommodation Services please make sure you complete your online induction and arrivals via your Accommodation Dashboard – this will generate your arrivals paperwork, which shows your key collection point and arrival time.

Car parking on campus

On arrival day, it’s helpful if you can unload your car as quickly as possible and move it to one of the other on-campus car parks. This helps to keep the roads around the accommodation clear for everyone. Get more information on car parking at the University.
