We provide the opportunity for students to experience all aspects of the Stirling lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Scotland. All housing options are within walking distance to the University of Stirling.
The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Scotland and the U.S. that will quickly become apparent upon your arrival. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility!
Students are normally allocated single or double occupancy bedrooms in campus run accommodations. Rooms come furnished with a bed, desk, chair and dresser or chest with drawers. Students will share other areas such as the bathrooms and the kitchen and lounge areas. The dorms are filled with international students as well as local students from around the U.K. This mix allows program participants the opportunity to meet students from a variety of backgrounds and is the ideal setting for students looking for a cultural immersion experience.
A $500 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount.
You may opt to secure housing independently. If you select this option, you will receive a discount equal to the housing portion of the program price. By choosing to opt out of the program's arranged housing, you are solely responsible for researching, reserving, and paying for all fees, deposits, and paying rent directly to the housing facility you choose.
