About the rooms

Glasney Double Room Tour

Join us for a tour of the student accommodation available at Glasney Student Village.

In Glasney Student Village, there are single and shared rooms. Both can be chosen as either a catered or non-catered option. Please be aware that around 60% of the beds available are in shared rooms.

More info

Shared rooms are cheaper than our other accommodation options.  

These clever rooms have studybeds which can rotate between a single bed or a large desk. The best part? You don't even need to clear your desk before rotating it into a bed. Check out the gallery to see these studybed rooms. 

If you don't want to worry about cooking each night then you can choose a catered option. 

Monday to Friday you'll get breakfast and dinner provided, and for the rest of the time you'll be able to use your flat kitchen. You'll also live with other catered students so you can choose to eat together. 

For more information, you can look at our catered halls page. 

We have a number of rooms that can be adapted for students with additional requirements.  They include the same facilities, but may have things such as grab rails or en-suite wet rooms. 

If you have specific medical needs you'll be able to put this in your application and we'd encourage you to do this as soon as possible. Our friendly Accommodation Team will then get in touch to discuss what you need.
