As a student at the Glasgow School of Art, you will live in self-catered accommodation, in a flat or student residence with other local and international students. Wireless internet access is provided and token-operated laundry facilities are available. A pillow and duvet will be included in your bedroom, though you will need to supply your own linens. Most students opt to purchase bedding materials after arriving in Scotland. All accommodation at the GSA is non-smoking.

All housing options at GSA are self-catered, so you’ll prepare your own meals in shared kitchens. Cutlery and crockery are not provided, but can be purchased inexpensively in Glasgow. Both residences are within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and cafes. As you read through the information below, please also review the general Scotland accommodation information.
