The majority of the halls are arranged as suites and have en-suite bathing facilities shared among members of the flat. Meals can be prepared in the self-catering kitchen facilities within the suites, or be purchased at the many on campus eateries.
The University's accommodation has been developed as a Campus Village, right in the heart of the city, on the eastern side of the John Anderson Campus between the Cathedral and George Square. At present over 1,440 students live on campus and approximately 500 live in University accommodation just outside the campus; some of this accommodation is located in the Merchant City. Both locations enable students to enjoy city life with ready access to University departments and facilities.
Approximately four days before the start of each semester, the Study Abroad Office at the University of Strathclyde conducts an orientation program for entering students. The program is comprised of an introduction to campus and local services, academic orientation, and a tour of campus and the local area. This orientation is a compulsory part of each semester's program and students are expected to arrive in time to begin their studies at this time.

A Special Note About Fall Study:
Many universities in the UK traditionally conclude their fall courses after the Christmas break with a final examination period in January. Early examinations are offered at the discretion of individual academic departments and must be requested on a case by case basis and cannot be guarnteed. The Office of International Education is happy to help you with this and will work with our partners at Strathclyde to determine your options. If applying for fall study, please note on your application that you will require early assessment in order to return home before Christmas.
