Accommodation for postgraduate students

We offer a wide range of comfortable and secure postgraduate residences on our beautiful 330-acre campus, in nearby Bridge of Allan and in Stirling’s vibrant city centre. We prioritise new students applying for accommodation.

When to apply for postgraduate accommodation

Start date Applications open
 January 2023 14 October 2022 
September 2023 April 2023

You can apply for postgraduate accommodation as long as you have received and accepted a conditional or unconditional offer to study at the University. To confirm your place in accommodation, you'll be required to pay a £300 rent pre-payment which is then deducted from your first rent payment. More information is in our accommodation allocation policy.

Postgraduate accommodation contracts run for 51 weeks. This means you can stay in your room over the Christmas holiday period if necessary.

January 2023 accommodation availability

We have four properties available for postgraduate students starting in January 2023:

  • Pendreich Way (£92.91 per week, £4,738.41 for the full contract period)
  • Thistle Chambers (£96.17 per week, £4,904.67 for the full 50 contract period)

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

September 2023 accommodation guarantee

For new students starting in September 2023, 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 within the timeframe we give you. You'll normally be allocated a single study bedroom in a University residence. The University has 2,800 bed spaces, over 18 properties, and your accommodation may be located either on-campus or off-campus. 

For more information, see our Accommodation Allocation Policy.

Applications will open in April 2023.
