Private Rented Accommodation >

If you have decided not to live in the Glasgow School of Art's Halls of Residence or have not been offered a place, then you may wish to look for accommodation in the Private Sector. This is usually housing rented out by independent landlords. This could mean living on your own, sharing with a number of other students, or living in the landlord's own home. Glasgow also has an excellent choice of commercially run student accommodation that you may wish to consider.

We can provide general information about Glasgow and some of the areas that you might consider living in.

Finding somewhere to live is a combination of hard work, persistence and determination on your part. Be prepared and plan your strategy. The How to Find Flats information we provide is primarily for those who are new to Glasgow and flat hunting and gives guidelines and information to help you.

Living in the Private Sector could mean paying Council Tax. Council Tax is a tax levied on adults for the maintenance of services offered to the public. These include: Water, road maintenance and refuse collection to name but a few.
