Next to University sports hall, tennis courts, swimming pool, Students Association, Main Library and the Chaplaincy Centre. Heathfield accommodates 426 students from the UK and around the world within 71 six-bedroom flats. Each flat has a fully fitted kitchen with dining and sitting area.

At Dundee, we recognise the varying needs of postgraduate students. Heathfield's proximity to the main campus and city centre means that while academic and social facilities are close by, Heathfield offers high quality ensuite accommodation conducive to a peaceful and secure working environment for students at a similar stage of their academic career. We want your time living with us to be as enjoyable and as hassle-free as possible.
