Dundee, Scotland

 Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city. Dundee has a great mix of shopping, dining, entertainment and attractions! Promoted as 'one city, many discoveries', the city benefits from a central geographic location, and has an excellent road, rail and air network, making it an increasingly popular choice as a short city-break destination. Dundee prides itself on their warm Scottish welcome with many places to eat and drink, great attractions and, because of Dundee’s proximity to Fife, Angus and Perthshire, some breathtaking scenery!

Abertay University does currently provide on-campus housing. Accommodation is not guaranteed, but exchange and study abroad students can apply for housing as soon as they are given a conditional offer, so they are able to apply earlier than anyone else. As long as they are proactive about applying and don't wait until the last minute, they should not have an issue finding a place. More detailed information is available online, on Abertay's Accommodations page
