Aberdeen for students
Aberdeen is a city which happily celebrates both our modern times and those good old days gone by. Old Aberdeen is famed for its impressive architecture and quaint fishing cottages, while the parks in the so-called 'Granite City' are claimed locally to be some of Scotland’s finest.
Thanks to its prosperous oil and gas industry, the city provides a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for students using private halls in Aberdeen while they study.
As Scotland's third largest city, it’s fittingly home to the country’s third oldest university and home to thousands of students at the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University. You can also study at North East Scotland College or Scotland's Rural College, Aberdeen.
Where do you think Aberdeen Angus beef got its name? Your locally sourced burger produce will be the best of the best, with a famous name that precedes itself. If you love a bit of red meat, there are plenty of burger and steak options in town as you might imagine, to keep your mouth watering. Vegetarians need not feel left out though, as there are plenty of places for you to tuck in and feel right at home.
There’s also an array of cuisine available from all around the world, and Indian cuisine is treated as somewhat of a delicacy in the city as well.
Union Square won’t be far from your student accommodation in Aberdeen, which is great because the shopping centre offers an abundance of delicious food options.
Things to do
For those who need their retail therapy fix, Union Square is a massive retail and leisure destination rivalling some of the UK’s largest shopping hubs. Additionally, Aberdeen's famous Granite Mile, Union Street, is the gateway to over 800 shops. Aberdeen has a huge range of restaurants, cafés, bistros and takeaways to be savoured, offering delicacies for its diverse and international population.
The nightlife in Aberdeen is not lacking either. For a big night out with a difference, a converted church and a reimagined monastery are just two of the places you might want to give a try. There are plenty of bars and clubs exclusive to the city, but the chains and student favourites have their place as well.
For those who are football fans, Aberdeen FC’s Pittodrie ground is also close by for anyone wanting to support the local team while they study. Whatever your interest, there is plenty going on and all a short walk or a quick taxi ride to your student flats in Aberdeen.
Arts & culture
For those uni students interested in sampling local culture and the arts away from their time in the lecture theatres, Aberdeen offers a variety of museums, theatres and galleries.
You’ll learn all about Aberdeen’s maritime ties at the aptly-named Maritime Museum, and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to become well-versed in other aspects of culture at His Majesty's Theatre – which plays host to drama, ballet, opera and musicals.
Music lovers don’t fear. AECC, The Lemon Tree and Music Hall are all excellent venues with plenty of touring artists attending throughout the year. For smaller acts and local talent, try the live music in the bars on Belmont Street.
Health & wellbeing
Aberdeen is somewhat of an outdoor paradise, with its plentiful opportunities for skiing, sailing, windsurfing, climbing, canoeing and more. Local parks include Duthie Park, Hazlehead Park and Johnston Gardens, or alternatively you can venture to Cairngorms National Park instead.
Love sport and fitness? Be sure to check out the Olympic-sized pool at Aberdeen Sports Village, or alternatively you can try one of the city’s many gyms or the facilities available on your campus.
For a fun and active day out, you can go bowling at Scotland’s largest bowling alley, play a round of golf at one of the many golf courses in the area, or even take part in a game of trampoline dodgeball at the Jump In Trampoline Park.
There are loads of bus services around, but in all fairness, you can often just walk or cycle because our Aberdeen student accommodation is at the heart of all the action. If the sometimes-harsh Scottish weather does get the better of you, you’ll be pleased to know there are student passes for public transportation available!
When it comes to heading outside of the city, there are plenty of ways to do so. Aberdeen Airport provides the quickest links to meet many English towns and cities. Prefer to stay in bonnie Scotland? You can reach the exciting city of Edinburgh in 2 hours 20 minutes, or Glasgow in around 3 hours.

Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
