Each flat has a communal kitchen and two toilets with sinks. Each room has a shower and a sink. Round tower flats have 5 bedrooms off a circular corridor and Square Tower flats have a central lounge area with 4 or 5 bedrooms off the lounge. Both towers have a communal lounge area on the top floor for all flat residents to use.

With only 49 rooms available, these rooms are heavily in demand and unfortunately we are unable to offer them to everyone that requests them. The campus is located in a quiet residential area and there are no facilities out of hours so if you want easy access to social activities this may not be the best site for you. The quirky design of the Round Tower means the rooms have built in beds to accommodate the round walls – not ideal for taller people!

Local Area

Garthdee Towers are located in a quiet location on campus with stunning views from the top floor communal lounges. 

The fabulous Duthie Park is just round the corner as well as the Deeside Way for walking or cycling.

Deeside Way is just a short stroll away and provides a beautiful area to walk or cycle.
