Standard Plus rooms are standard rooms but it gives access to a shared living room area within the flat. Just like a standard room, there is 1 single bed, 1 wardrobe, 1 set of drawers, 1 desk and 1 desk chair. You will share a small kitchen and toilet/shower room with your 2 other flatmates.

Lyon Street Building

Our Lyon Street residences have 125 bedrooms, divided into one, two, and three bedroom flats.

Spread across two buildings, these former private flats have been converted by Abertay, and retain the feel of a private rental, but with the perks of university accommodation.

Light, airy bedrooms have been made up as singles, twins or doubles, and all contain storage and study areas.

Lyon Street is the furthest residence from campus, but is still only ten minutes’ walk away, benefits from free, on-street public parking, and is seconds from busy Albert Street, which offers shopping and numerous public transport options.

Residents at Lyon Street have exclusive access to a large area of green space located behind one of the buildings. It is a perfect place to chill out, play games, or have barbecues with your flatmates and neighbours.

Lyon Street tends to be a bit more subdued than our other residences, mainly due to flat sizes. However, those living there find a great community spirit, and there is always something going on.

Allocation Policy

When allocating accommodation the University gives priority to new students/first entrants and to overseas students who are new to Dundee (and studying for 1 full academic year). The University's accommodation is self-catering and the majority of first year undergraduates will be housed in blocks of university flats.

You may state your accommodation preference, but while we will make every effort to match your preference, limited availability means this cannot be guaranteed. It is essential that any special needs and/or requirements are entered on the application form.

Applications will only be considered from students who are prepared to accept the terms of the Student Residences Agreement for their full period of study in the relevant academic year. This is a legally binding agreement and students should not accept the terms without fully understanding their meaning.
