Visitor accommodation

breakfast at Jean Muir Student Village

Opened in 2012, the Student Village is designed to a high standard and offers quality contemporary amenities including free WiFi and  24 hour reception and security. Awarded a 3-star rating by VisitScotland, these unrivalled facilities are available to the public from late May until the end of August.

During the summer period (between July and August), the Jean Muir Student Village is available to external visitors to book (for groups of 10 or more, for a 2 night stay, minimum).  We specialise in providing accommodation to large group bookings on a self catering basis.  For groups requiring catering, arrangements may be made with an external catering provider to include breakfast, lunches and dinner. The staff will be more than happy to discuss all requests and can tailor stays to suit visitors' requirements. 

A short walk from the town centre of Galashiels, ringed by the beautiful rolling countryside of this historic region, we are ideally located for exploring many of the activities on offer in the Scottish Borders, such as golf, fishing, walking, cycling and horse riding.  And now, with the recently opened Borders Railway, we are only a 50 minute train journey from Edinburgh.
