Accommodation Arrangements

Whether you’re moving into Abertay-owned residences, private student halls, or a flat in the city, your safety is our main priority. Dundee is a fantastic place to live and, as restrictions ease, the city is now opening back up, with plenty expected to be going on by the start of term.  

We've have reviewed the number of spaces on offer in all Abertay-owned student accommodation to make shared living, study and social spaces safer. Our Residences team can provide all the information you need, including the likes of room allocation, cleaning procedures and social distancing rules.  

Booking and refunds   

You can apply for University accommodation here. All of our contract dates will match up with the revised start date for the 2020/21 academic year, with Orientation Week now due to begin on September 14.   

If you are prevented from arriving in Dundee and you have already signed your lease, you will be able to cancel it with 28 days’ notice. We do not take a deposit, but you will be asked to make a prepayment of rent when you accept your room offer. If you cannot attend due to Coronavirus restrictions in your home country, or the UK, you will get a refund.  

Health and safety measures  

If you have underlying medical conditions or health issues, please let us know during the application process. Our Residences team will work with you to make sure you are supported.  

We will be putting a series of enhanced safety measures in place in all of our residences, including social distancing rules, additional cleaning and protocols for shared spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. 

Quarantine for students arriving from outside the UK  

Students travelling to the United Kingdom from some countries may need to quarantine for two weeks. International and EU students who are taking up a place in student accommodation provided by the University will be offered two weeks' free accommodation at all our halls of residence prior to the start of Freshers’ Week (31 August to 13 September). Keep up to date on the possiblity of quarantine here.
