WHEN SHOULD I APPLY?
- The deadline for applications for September arrivals is
- We recommend that you submit your Student Accommodation
application as soon as possible
- Any application received after the deadline will be considered,
subject to accommodation availability
WHO CAN APPLY?
Applicants should note that the demand for accommodation
outweighs the number of rooms available in our student halls of
residence. For this reason we require to prioritise applications
and allocate accommodation based on the following criteria:
IMMEDIATE PRIORITY IS GIVEN TO STUDENTS
- Have accepted an offer of full-time study at GSA
- Have no previous experience of living independently
- Have a recognised and declared disability or special need which
will impact on accommodation requirements
- Live outwith daily travelling distance
Applicants should note that the accommodation is not offered on
a first come first serve basis and fulfilling one or more of the
above criteria does not guarantee an offer of accommodation.
The sooner you apply and we receive your form and if later we
can offer housing, the date we received your form will be taken
into consideration when allocations are being done. In short
this means that forms received sooner are more likely to be offered
Applicants who are not offered residential student accommodation
will be assisted by the Student Welfare Department to help find
suitable student accommodation in the private sector.
WHAT IF I RECEIVE A 'CONDITIONAL' OFFER OF STUDY AT
Applications are invited from students who have received an
'Unconditional' or 'Conditional' offer of study at the Glasgow
School of Art. If you apply with a 'Conditional' offer, your
application will be processed using the priority criteria detailed
above. This system ensures that all applicants have an equal
opportunity. If we can offer you housing you will be sent a letter
of comfort to confirm that housing has been reserved for you.
Later, when your offer becomes unconditional you will be sent a
formal offer with confirmation of type and site we can offer
HOW DO I APPLY?
When you receive an offer of a place on a course of full-time
study at GSA you will be sent information from our Student
Records Department about GSA. This will include info which
directs you to the halls section of the GSA website. At this site
you can read all about halls and download the halls application
form. Please complete and return the application form by post, or
scan and email your application. Please note that faxed
applications are not accepted.
