Borders College have entered into a partnership agreement with Heriot Watt University to offer Borders College students fantastic accommodation within their multi-million pound contemporary Jean Muir Student Village, just across the road from our Galashiels campus.

Spaces are limited, so priority will be given to those in their first year of study at Borders College and students who are not within a reasonable travelling distance to the College.

Included in the accommodation contract will be a regular cleaning service, heating and power, internet connection, security, and repairs.

More information about our Student Accommodation as well as the answers to frequently asked questions can be found here.
