Royal Conservatoire of Scotland accommodation
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is the perfect choice for anyone passionate about the arts, specifically being trained in performing and production arts – and when you stay at our student accommodation in Glasgow you'll be at the heart of all of the action!
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is the Scottish destination of choice for anyone passionate about the arts, specifically being trained in performing and production arts. There are specialist vocational courses available to the very best of the best in their field. You can study vocational education in dance, drama, music, production and screen, among the best of your contemporaries from all over the world.
There are around 900 students at any time at RCS, so it’s an intimate experience where you will receive strong support throughout. The University can award its own degrees right up to Masters level and anything higher is provided by prestigious institutions across the country.
The prospects for graduates of RCS are excellent, and there are partnerships with huge companies like the National Theatre of Scotland and the BBC to provide students with some incredible opportunities.
The Conservatoire is based in the vibrant and culturally significant city of Glasgow, and as a result it’s also a busy performing arts venue, and audiences exceed 40,000 people in any given year.
RCS aims to provide a contemporary, informed and relevant curriculum for modern times which will set its graduates up to excel. Boundaries will be pushed and the very top talent will be harnessed and used so students can achieve their creative potential.
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offers its students that little bit extra. When you stay in our RCS accommodation, we do exactly the same thing.
The tuition is top-class, and so are you – as a valued student. Why shouldn’t the campus be, too? The facilities at RCS are among the best in Europe and a lot of investment has gone into these to ensure that they remain competitive.
For a start, the performance spaces at RCS host hundreds of events per year to an adoring public of over 40,000. Developments in recent years have also been to the actual rehearsal spaces as well as several studios across all disciplines. The RCS also have the RED one digital camera which allows students on the Digital Film and Television programme to shoot in RED HD cinema. They were the first to be able to do so, and the technology at the University keeps on improving by the year so they’ll remain unsurpassed.
The campus sits in a creative hub and so there have been generous urban regeneration programmes. The Scottish Opera and the National Theatre of Scotland sit just across the way.
It’s not just music and arts facilities which are exemplary – you’ll be able to conduct your studies easily, too, thanks to IT facilities and labs which have also been worked on.
The GSU accommodation that we provide puts you at the heart of Glasgow as well as right on the doorstep of where the campus magic happens, so the city really is your oyster.
At the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland the undergraduate degrees have a completely vocational emphasis and you will learn to be not only proficient but at the top of your game. The degree experience is different top other universities – you already know your subject inside out in order to be accepted, but you attend this prestigious institution to fine-tune your skills and develop professional ones, too.
When you study your first degree here, you’ll benefit from the highest staff-student ratio of all UK Conservatoires. This means you’ll be given intensive one-to-one tuition, a push in the right direction with everything you do, and of course, a challenging but fun learning environment to really put your skills, creativity and drive to the test.
You’ll be kept in regular contact with professional counterparts in your industry, so that you can really get on their radar. These relationships will be established thanks to opportunities provided by the RCS.
When you stay at our RCU accommodation you’ll be able to meet the exciting demands which will be placed upon you whilst still getting to enjoy all the fun of being a student.
You can study plenty of postgraduate Masters Programmes, which are often internationally recognised. If you’d prefer to do a taught degree than a research based one, there is a distinctive ethos at RCS which prides itself on fulfilling the same excellence in research as it does in performance.
In the institution’s desire to be outstanding, there’s a real drive to be providing the most qualified of students with the best possible assistance and support. Over two thirds of research in an incredible range of areas is classes as world leading or international excellent, and the Royal Conservatoire in general has the strongest impact of any Scottish work in the field.
PhD and MPhil degrees are accredited in accordance with the fantastic University of St Andrews, so you’ll have double the access to great facilities and teaching standards.
You’re at the best University for your continuing development in the arts, so it only makes sense that you choose the best new home to stay in whilst you attend. Our Royal Conservatoire of Scotland accommodation allows you to achieve your full potential.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
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.
