Accommodation

Whether you are considering living away from home for the first time or you’re a seasoned flat-hunter, the following pages will provide  information about your options. Remember that living away from home can be expensive and living at home with the support of family might be a more practical option while you pursue your studies.

However, whatever you decide we are here to help. Young students living away from home for the first time may wish to consider our Halls of Residence as a safe and secure option.

About our Hall of Residence
The New Hall of Residence at Riverside Campus is due to open in September 2015 and will provide a safe, secure, clean and welcoming environment for all students who stay there. The building will be licensed by Glasgow City Council under the Houses of Multiple Occupancy Scheme.

Staffing
Student residents will be provided with help, support and pastoral care 24 hours a day. We aim to ensure that we provide a welcoming environment for student residents and refine services as and when required to ensure that they are happy in their home. All staff are committed to the wellbeing of student residents and therefore adopt a sympathetic and understanding approach.  A member of College staff will be on duty 7 days a week from 0730 -2200.  A monthly residents meeting will be held which will provide the opportunity to suggest improvements which may enrich their living/learning experience.

Facilities
The ground floor houses an open reception and games room area that will be available to students 24 hours a day.  There is also a flexible area for residents to participate in group study which should enhance their student experience.
A daily cleaning service will be provided to ensure we meet high standards of hygiene and cleanliness at all times. We will also provide a bed linen change on a two weekly basis to all long term residents.

Each flat consists of either four or five bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a shared living area with colour television. Kitchens are fully equipped with microwave, toaster kettle, utensils and crockery and cutlery.

Health and Safety
Staff will carry out weekly health and safety inspections in all public and communal area and two weekly inspections of bedrooms.

Independent Living
A considerable number of students are either International students or under the age of 18, therefore, catering and fending for themselves for the first time may be a challenge. To ensure they are equipped and supported staff will provide comprehensive induction training in life skills shortly after the students arrive at the accommodation. We also provide information folders in each flat with hints and tips on independent living, shopping and cooking. All student cadets and any resident who is under 21 years of age are not permitted to consume alcohol in the accommodation at any time

Private Letting

There are a number of ways to find property with a private landlord. Some landlords manage the letting process themselves, whilst others use letting agents who help them rent and maintain their property. Newspapers and magazines also have regular adverts for flats/bedists for rent. These include The Herald, Daily Record and Evening Times all run adverts.

The Internet is also a good place to start with any accommodation search. Many students use Gum Tree to look for flatshares. If you are responding to any advert from a private landlord or flatshare and you arrange a viewing, it is always advisable to take a friend with you.
