Accommodation at Orkney Campus

Houses in Stromness, OrkeyThere are no halls of residence or University leased flats at the Orkney Campus, but our Orkney Student Support Adviser is happy to help you find private accommodation locally. 

When you accept your offer of a place on your programme, you will be sent an information pack that includes a Visit Orkney brochure and a list of available accommodation. 

Local weekly newspapers, such as The Orcadian, advertise reasonably priced properties in and around Stromness. You can also contact local estate agents, such as Drever & Heddle and JEP Robertson & Son directly to enquire about their rental properties. Our Orkney Student Support Adviser keeps a full list of local estate agents' and landlords' contact details and can help you find something suitable.

A number of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom properties within walking distance of the Orkney Campus are usually available to rent. You should expect to pay about £280–£310 per month for rent. Please be aware that due to the extended Scapa Flow diving season Stromness accommodation prices are extremely high until the end of October.
