Student accommodation, flats and rooms for rent in Dundee

Dundee is a coastal town in eastern Scotland on the Tay Estuary. It is a small but very beautiful city, with different historical sites to visit. In addition, from Dundee, you will be able to travel to other cities in the country easily, such as Edinburgh, St Andrews and Glasgow, for example.

Despite being a small town, this Scottish town is lively and welcoming. Its universities receive thousands of local and international students every year, so the young environment is usually very dynamic, with various activities and events to enjoy in the city.

Looking for student accommodation in Dundee? One fact that you have to take into account is that landlords seek to rent their apartments or rooms as soon as possible, so young people usually look for it well in advance. If you wait until the last minute to search, it will probably be more difficult for you to find accommodation that meets all your preferred characteristics.

Student apartments for rent in Dundee

If you are looking for a student apartment in Dundee, you have to know that what you will find most are studio apartments with a capacity for one or two people (ideally a couple). In these flats all the facilities are for you, that is, you will not have to share the common areas, the bathroom or the kitchen. However, keep in mind that the cost of these flats is usually higher than those shared between several students since in the latter all the expenses are divided between those who live there (both the cost of rent and that of the utility bills).

For reference, the price of a Dundee studio flat averages £ 2,750 per month, but can also go up to £ 3,630 per month. Remember that the cost depends on the characteristics of the apartment and the location in which it can be found.

Student room for rent in Dundee

Renting a room in a shared flat is often the preferred accommodation option for young Erasmus and this is also the case in Dundee. The main reason is that it allows you to save on the cost of rent (which is usually cheaper than a complete apartment) and on the price of monthly utility bills. However, another important reason is that when you rent a room you share a flat with other students who are in the same situation as you, making the experience more fun.

The cost of rooms in shared flats in Dundee ranges from £ 420 and can go up to £ 960 per month.
