Each flat has Communal kitchen and lounge in each flat. Standard flats have two toilets and two shower rooms with toilet and sink (8 bed flats have an extra shower room). Ensuite flats have no communal toilets or bathrooms. 

This is a great location if you’re on a budget as Woolmanhill standard rooms are the cheapest in our portfolio yet still offer a comfortable and convenient place to stay.

A site exclusively for RGU students, there are plenty of opportunities to get to know other students and a large ResLife team to support you.

RGU has recently installed new Smart TVs in the lounge of each flat and has provided a TV licence so you can watch TV with flatmates, connect your console or use services such as Netflix if you have a subscription.

For early risers, there are three buses to campus direct from Woolmanhill each morning between 8:00am and 8:30am.

There is an on-site office open 24 hours a day where you can report any maintenance issues, collect parcels or ask general questions about the area, and the site has overnight security staff for additional security and to provide assistance where needed.
