How to book your room

Once you've firmly accepted your offer to study at Abertay University so you're definitely intending to study with us in September, you'll get an email inviting you to apply for a room. Click the link(s) in the email and use the email code we sent to book your room.

Full details about how to apply are below.


Parker House: how to apply

  3. Input the email code.

  4. Choose your room type.

  5. Register/login to the website.

  7. You'll pay £100 deposit*, which secures your booking. This comes off your first month’s rent. (You have 72 hours to complete this step.)

  9. All done? Your new room is booked. See you in September!

*If you don't meet the conditions of your offer in August, or your visa is refused, the £100 will be refunded.

Your first month's rent payment needs to be paid in full before you can move in. Your first month's rent is due on 1 August, and if you don't meet the conditions of your offer, you will be fully refunded.

Priority groups and allocation

New students from outside the Dundee area (postcodes DD1-5), students with disabilities, and care leavers are given priority when booking accommodation.

If you are a care leaver or have a disability where you need additional support, please contact our advisory team to discuss your needs before booking your accommodation. Please put 'Accommodation additional support' in the email subject line.

Abertay has no control over the room allocation for other groups.

Please note: you must have FIRMLY ACCEPTED your Abertay offer before you can apply for accommodation.
