Flats are arranged in a cluster of 10 en-suite bedrooms for single occupancy. The majority of rooms have standard double beds, but there are some ground floor rooms that have a single bed and a larger en-suite.

Each flat comes with a well-equipped kitchen and some flats also have a lounge area. You’ll have access to the shared kitchen with your own lockable cupboard. 

We have a limited number of parking spaces available at The Villas. You can purchase a permit from our main office at Heathfield.

You’ll also have access to our spacious common room with large-screen TV and games console plus private study booths; creating the prefect private study-zone!

Your agreement with the University is for the full period and if you choose to move out before the end of the tenancy, or if your occupancy is terminated as a result of a breach of discipline, you will still be responsible for paying your rent up until the end of your tenancy. However, if a replacement University of Dundee student can be found by you and is approved by the University, they may take over the tenancy. You will need to pay your rent until the replacement tenant has moved in.

TV licence

If you are bringing a TV to watch live TV, or if you receive or record live TV programmes on any other device, such as a laptop, you will need a TV Licence. You won’t be covered by your parents’ licence.

Our TV licences only cover the TVs that we provide, for example in common rooms and lounge areas.

For more information and to buy your licence, visit the TV Licensing website. There are a variety of payment plans available.

The TV licensing authorities recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a TV licence as you leave the accommodation during the summer. You may be able to receive a refund for this period, provided that you don’t need your licence again before it expires.

If you do not have a TV Licence but you receive or record live TV you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.
