How to Apply For Abertay University Accommodation

How to Apply For Abertay University Accommodation:

You can apply via OASIS once you have firmly accepted a conditional or unconditional offer.

To access the Residences Application in OASIS follow the instructions below:

  • Click on Applicants Portal at the bottom of the home page
  • Sign in using your username and password
  • Click on ‘Residences Application and Offer’
  • Follow instructions from there

You will be asked to make five accommodation choices in order of preference with one being your first choice. Five choices must be made in order to complete the application.

To notify us of any other important information or any specific requests regarding sharing with friends, alcohol-free accommodation or a disability then you can note these in the ‘Special Needs/Comments’ section.

If you are a student with a disability of any kind please contact our Adviser to Students with Disabilities:

If a paper application is required, you should contact us. Please note that paper applications will only be issued once the application is open and once your offer to study at Abertay is firmly accepted. 

Alcohol-free accommodation:

Subject to demand, we are offering students the chance to apply for alcohol-free accommodation in our halls of residence (Parker House is not included).  Anyone assigned to this type of accommodation (including their guests) must not bring alcohol into the flat (whether for cooking or other consumption). Doing so will contravene your agreement with us.

If you would like to apply for alcohol-free accommodation please note this in the preferences section in the special needs/comments box. We cannot guarantee an offer of this type of accommodation since it is subject to demand.

Who can apply:

New students/first entrants – students coming to Abertay for the first time regardless of what year of the course you are entering.

Allocation priority is given to new students/first entrants who plan to study with the institution for a minimum of one full academic year.

Semester 1 and 2 students – students studying at Abertay for one semester only

Please note we only have a limited number of rooms available for one semester only.

The application will show 40-week and 51-week options. Note that you are studying for one semester only in the ‘Special Needs/Further Information’ box and then select your choices.

2016-17 lease dates will be as follows (please note that these dates are fixed and non-negotiable):

  • Semester 1 = 28 August 2016 to 8 January 2017 (19 weeks)
  • Semester 2 =  8 January 2017 to 4 June 2017 (21 weeks)

Returning students – full-time students who have studied with Abertay previously and plan to continue with their studies during the coming academic year

We are offering returning students accommodation in 2016-17. Please contact the Residences team for an application.

Allocation policy

When allocating accommodation, the University gives priority to new students/first entrants and to overseas students who are new to Dundee (and studying for one full academic year). The University’s accommodation is self-catering and the majority of first-year undergraduates will be housed in blocks of university flats.

You may state your accommodation preference, but while we will make every effort to match your preference, limited availability means this cannot be guaranteed. It is essential that any special needs and/or requirements are entered on the application form.

Applications will only be considered from students who are prepared to accept the terms of the Student Residences Agreement for their full period of study in the relevant academic year. This is a legally binding agreement and students should not accept the terms without fully understanding their meaning.
