Accommodation Arrangements

2021 Updates

Whether you’re moving into Abertay-owned residences, private student halls, or a flat in the city, your safety is our main priority. 

All of our accommodation buildings are set up in line with national Covid safety guidelines and you will be provided with detailed guidance on social distancing and hygiene arrangements for living in student residences before you arrive.

Like all universities, we are following the Scottish Government’s student accommodation rules closely, and will keep in touch with you as your move in date approaches.

Our Residences team can provide all the information you need, including room allocation, cleaning procedures and social distancing rules. You can contact them at

We also have some helpful information in the Accommodation FAQ section.

If you need any assistance during your departure or arrival you should call the Support Enquiry Zone on 01382 308833 or email

Remember, once living in a student residence, you and your immediate flatmates are classed as one household and should follow all Scottish Government guidance for households. You don’t need to socially distance from one another and don't need to wear a face covering around each other, unless you want to. 

If you are using any shared spaces open to other student households you must practise social distancing.


Don't forget, you can find more information in our FAQs.
