Accommodation guarantee

We guarantee a place in the Jean Muir Student Village for all new full time students (undergraduate and postgraduate) in their first year, if: 

  • you are a new full time student,
  • you have an unconditional firm offer of a place at the University,
  • you apply for accommodation online before the closing date - 12:00 midday (BST) on 24 August 2021.

In this guarantee we also include direct entrants to year 2 or 3, studying full-time, for a full academic year.

Visiting students/ one-semester Accommodation

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee on-campus accommodation for visiting students who are studying with us for just one semester. On-campus accommodation for one semester is subject to availability. 

Students with disabilities or extra support needs

A number of rooms on campus have been purpose built and are fully accessible. Our Student Advisor can give you more information.

If you are an international student, you must contact us in advance so that we can assess whether we are able to meet your support and care needs in the residences.

Family accommodation

Unfortunately, we don’t have family accommodation on campus, but if you contact the Accommodation Office, they may be able to assist with your enquiries for off campus, private lets. We recommend that you travel to Galashiels on your own first before making arrangements for your family to join you.
