Student Accommodation


SRUC has access to a range of accommodation available for students, either on campus, in arrangement with partner universities or in the local area. This includes Halls of Residence at some campuses.

New students are given priority for places in SRUC accommodation, and assistance is available to help students find accommodation in the private sector.

Accommodation details are sent to applicants to whom an offer is made.

2020-2021: Covid

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, this year will be unusual for all of us. To help maintain safe physical distancing, we are moving to a blended learning approach across all of our campuses. This also gives us flexibility should we need to close a campus at short notice due to a local outbreak to minimise any possible disruption to your studies.

We believe it would be unfair to request you to pay for the full academic year of accommodation if you are not going to be staying on campus for the whole time. To help you, we have a new flexible way of booking accommodation at Barony, Craibstone, Elmwood and Oatridge.

SRUC doesn't manage any halls of residence in Edinburgh or Ayr, but we are speaking to partners and accommodation providers to look at options for next year. However, if you would like to stay with us at Barony, Craibstone, Elmwood or Oatridge for the full term, you can do so on similar terms and fees as 2019/2020 academic year. If you want a more flexible arrangement you can book accommodation on a nightly basis at the same time as your group's practical session and workshops.

Please be assured that our Campus and Estates team are working closely with the Academic team to help your studies go as smoothly as possible. Whichever route you choose, accommodation will be available, and there is no rush to make a decision.
