Starting University and becoming involved in academic life is an exciting experience. It is a real opportunity to meet new people, make great friends and, for some of you, have your first taste of living independently. Whilst these are exciting times, we do understand that you might feel a little apprehensive about leaving what you know and finding a new place to live. And new students are guaranteed a place in our portfolio of accommodation.

We also offer you the opportunity to meet and chat to your flat mates virtually before you arrive in Aberdeen through our accommodation Facebook groups.
