Student Accommodation Overview – University of Dundee

October 12, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi I’m Amy and I’m here to show you the student accommodation at the University of Dundee. We have almost 1,600 bedrooms across four main sites. Belmont and Heathfield are on campus, Seabraes is a couple of minutes out, and then West Park is in-between the campus and the Ninewells Teaching Hospital. We are only five minutes away from the city centre which has loads of restaurants and bars, only ten minutes away from the big supermarkets, and just ten minutes away from the railway station. I’m standing here on campus green. The Library is just a minutes walk over there, it’s got loads of really good study space and it’s a really nice environment. Right behind me is the Enquiry Centre where you can get lots of good information and great support. Next to that is DUSA. It’s the Student Union building, it’s fantastic. It’s got a nightclub, bars, restaurant and even a swimming pool. Behind me are the Belmont flats and right next to that is the Queen Mother Building of Computing. Just a minutes walk away from campus green we are here are the Heathfield site, where behind me you can see the Sanctuary Student Accommodation Office. They are here to help you with any problems you have with your accommodation. Just next door to our on campus student accommodation is the Institute of Sport and Exercise Here we have fantastic gym facilities and sports halls. Seabraes is just a five minute walk away from the centre of campus. West Park on the other hand is around a 25 minute walk from campus, but it’s really handy for medical and nursing students as it’s half-way between the nightlife on main campus and your study life at Ninewells Hospital. It sits in a residential area on a main bus route so it’s really easy to get to. Whatever site you are based in all our bedrooms are en-suite, so you get your very own toilet and shower facilities – no need to share. All our rooms are self-catering but with plenty of options to buy good value and good quality food nearby. You will share your kitchen facilities with other students in your flat. Security staff are here should you need them. They are even here overnight for our students in accommodation. There is a 24 hour helpline to get through to the security team. There is also emergency points, like this one, situated throughout the campus. Secure door entry systems are in place in the majority of our student accommodation buildings. Secure laundry facilities are available on all sites. They are reasonably priced and self-service. All utility bills are included in the cost of your rent, so you don’t have to worry about paying extra for water and electricity. Free super fast Wi-Fi is available in all our flats. Lockable bike storage is also available on all our sites. Mail can be delivered directly to your flat, including parcels where possible. If not, there are various pick-up points across the University, including this really handy Amazon locker right under Belmont Tower. While you are living with us we have many staff and students ready to help and support you. This includes a team of Student Support Assistants, who will live within your accommodation buildings, and who will pop in to see you all regularly. Our Residences staff are situated within the Enquiry Centre, and they are available for help during office hours. We also have staff available in the reception areas within Seabraes and West Park. When you apply to stay in our accommodation, you are asked for your preferences, and we try to match you with flatmates on this basis as far as possible. Wherever you stay and whoever you end up sharing with we are sure you will receive a warm welcome and make life-long friends.
