During the summer period (between July and August), the Jean Muir Student Village provides modern and comfortable accommodation for individuals, families and groups at Heriot-Watt University's Scottish Borders Campus.
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.
We specialise in large group bookings on a self catering basis, for smaller groups (less than 10), a minimum 2 night stay is required. For groups requiring catering, arrangements can 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, cycling and horse riding. And now, with the recently opened Borders Railway, we are only a 50 minute train journey from Edinburgh.
From self catering, to bed & breakfast (B&B) or bed and breakfast with dinner*, we can cater for most requirements. All our rooms are fitted with ensuite bathrooms, we have a number of spacious self catering flats with well equipped kitchens and lounges.
Our single occupancy rooms are all fitted with a three quarter size bed and comfy chair, a number of double rooms are also available. Prices start at £32 per person per night (room only). We can cater for large group bookings and each of our buildings have several communal lounges.
