Aberdeen is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with a large student population. It is important to note however that accommodation in the city is in high demand and can be quite expensive - you should therefore begin your search for accommodation as early as possible.
North East Scotland College does not have its own accommodation for students, but there are a number of student accommodation providers plus a substantial amount of private rented accommodation available within Aberdeen city centre.
UNITE are widely renowned for their fantastic student accommodation, located in various areas that are perfect for those studying at the Aberdeen campuses of North East Scotland College. Whether you're looking to move in with friends or arrange something individually, UNITE will have something suitable available, whatever your year of study.

Often the easiest way to find out about opportunities for accommodation is to have a look online. Below we've listed some helpful websites which may be of use when looking for somewhere to stay:
This website has a lot of great advice about renting accommodation, and has a "Student Notice Board" where students across the region can post adverts in a bid to find a suitable flatmate.
CityLets is an up-to-date accommodation database listing properties available for rent. It's compiled by real-time contributions for solicitors and letting agencies, and hosts a comprehensive letting database focusing on properties in Scotland.
This is a comprehensive nationwide website advertising various private properties for let in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
This website is for property letting and accommodation rental throughout Scotland.
Gumtree is a very useful site where people can advertise rooms or properties to rent, or issue you a request/advertisement for a flatmate.
This site aims to make rental as easy as possible, operating strictly in the Aberdeen property rental market.
Where else can I look for accommodation?
- Newspapers - Local newspapers such as The Press & Journal and The Evening Express often print advertisements for rented accommodation.
- Notice Boards - Check out the Students' Association notice board on campus, as it often has adverts from students who are looking for others to share a flat with.
- Word of Mouth - A lot of student housing changes hands on an informal basis, so it's always worth asking other students in your classes if anybody knows of a property to lease.
Before you agree to take on any accommodation, be sure to:
- View the property. Ensure it is well maintained, secure and doesn't suffer from damp/draughts
- Make sure the location of the property is in a safe area
- Ask for a rent or tenancy agreement which clearly sets out the terms and conditions of your lease. This should include what is covered in the rent, amount of deposit required, the length of lease and who is responsible for any repairs that might need done whilst you're staying there.
- Ask for an inventory of all the materials that are left in the accommodation (i.e. tables, chairs, cutlery, plates, etc.) and check that it is correct. Report any missing items to the landlord immediately, or anything that was already damaged when you moved in. Keep the inventory in a safe place and check again carefully before you move out.
- Get a rent book or some form of receipt for all monies paid to the landlord
- Establish what bills you will be responsible for to get an accurate estimate of monthly costs
