Student Accommodation in Aberdeen

Written by Sam | January 25, 2021

Aberdeen is a city in Scotland that has two universities. There is the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University. Scotlands third-largest city has around 22,000 university students in it.

The larger university is the University of Aberdeen with roughly 13,000 full time students.

Living in Aberdeen as a student is a great place because it has a lot of history, it has plenty to do and the transport makes it easy to get around in the city, when you travel further out, the transport gets a lot less.

Student Housing in Aberdeen

Aberdeen has some great houses for students. Scotland also has some differences to England as a student, so make sure you brush up on these before you move if you are moving into Scotland.

Some good providers of student housing in Aberdeen are:

The biggest problem of searching in Scotland is having to differentiate between what is a regular family house and what is an HMO from websites. A lot of times they will say it in the description, however, the one big plus of searching in England and other areas is that you have dedicated student accommodation letting agents and there doesn’t to be a feature for that in Scotland.

The best areas to live as a student in Aberdeen are:

  • Rosemount
  • City Centre
  • Kittybrewster

The houses in Aberdeen vary, but the price is quite reasonable for the city. I would say that the average weeks rent for a student with bills included is between £100-£120 depending on how far you live outside of the centre.

If you want to look through a whole list of student letting agents, then there is a list on the Robert Gordon University Students Union Website. However, I don’t know the quality of all of them.

If you are looking for student housing in Aberdeen and want to know what to look for to make sure that you find a good student house, then here are my top tips:

  • View the property where possible
  • Check for the quality of the finish in each room
  • Make sure it is clean
  • Check the inventory
  • Read the tenancy before booking
  • View at least three properties.
