Personal Requirements FAQs

Personal Requirements FAQs

What facilities are available for disabled students?

We have a limited number of flats which have been adapted to suit students with restricted mobility and we will do our best to adapt to meet your needs.

However, there is no single solution to suit everyone. Please contact Student Services on advisory@abertay.ac.uk and a member of staff will be able to further inform you about how we can assist with your particular disability.

Also, we have several AccessAble: accessibility guides for our campus.

If I have a medical problem will I get priority?

There are a number of rooms reserved for students who need additional support such as a medical condition or disability. Please contact us before you apply to discuss your needs. Either email residences@abertay.ac.uk or phone +44 (0)1382 308049. 

To help you we have several AccessAble: accessibility guides for our campus.

Do you have any services/facilities for students with mental health problems?

Please contact Student Services on advisory@abertay.ac.uk.

I have asthma. Can I be sure of having non-smoking accommodation?

Yes, all our residences are non-smoking.

Do I have to clear my room at Christmas?

No. All residents in university accommodation have both the Christmas and spring vacations included within their tenancy agreement.

Can I get University accommodation after my first year?

You need to apply directly to your preferred halls of residence who will tell you if they have space available. You'll find the website details on the rooms and halls page.

Can you view private accommodation for me?

Unfortunately, this is not one of the services that we are able to offer to students. Everyone has his or her own criteria for what makes a great flat, so it is much better if you check out the options for yourself.

The University makes no recommendations with regards to private landlords or rental companies.

Student Services have some information available and the Shelter Scotland website has good advice on finding private accommodation to rent.
