How your room is allocated

We try to match up people in our residences to create well balanced flats

To give us the best chance of finding the right flat for you we will start by choosing which site you’ll live in. You will initially receive an offer for a room type and a site. We will let you know your Flat and Room numbers closer to arrival.

For 2020-21 our first priority will be to follow any health guidance from the Scottish Government.

Where we can, we will take into account preferences on your application form and your:

  • age
  • date of application
  • existing friends
  • health issues
  • length of lease
  • nationality

We choose the best site for you - this depends on what is available when you apply. We always make the best offer we can, but that might not always be one of your top preferences.

If we can't offer you one of your top preferences, then we will use the information you've given us in your accommodation application as a guide. We'll go through your site and room type preferences in the order you put them down and use all the factors above to decide which is the best accommodation available for you.

We guarantee one offer of accommodation as long as you apply by the deadline, so we do our utmost to make sure that we offer the most suitable accommodation available.

We'll get in touch as soon as we can, but because we take so many factors into account this can take up to 15 working days.

If you forgot to let us know something on your application form, just let us know by emailing us.
