New Legislation on Student Halls

What's On

Scottish Parliament passed a bill which became an act on the 26th May
(COVID Bill) – the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No. 2).

It’s a limited piece of legislation that will be in place until the 30th September. This bill will allow students in current contracts for student accommodation (either University accommodation or private/purpose-built student halls) to give 7 days notice to end their contract.

For those that start new contracts between 26th May and 30th September for these accommodations, they will be able to give 28 days’ notice to leave. This only applies to those in student accommodation, so if you are in a private let through a landlord or letting agency, the legislation is different and it's best to check what applies to you.

If you are unsure about your housing situation then please contact our
Advice Hub, who are here to support you.

3 Minutes Of Your Time To Help The World Learn How To Adapt And Change!

Own voices

Jearni is a small Scottish start-up business ( with a mission to help students across the world become more effective learners  - helping them successfully adapt to change, to get better outcomes from their studies, to get the jobs that they want and to make a difference in the world.

We are collaborating with the University of Strathclyde in designing our next-generation online app, and we really need some insight from the people who we hope will use our app  - students like you!

The link below takes you to a very short questionnaire ( 11 questions)  that asks a small number of important questions about how you learn, what is important to you about your learning, and how you think we could help make your learning more effective.

If you could take 3 minutes to fill this in it would be hugely appreciated. And we will also donate £1 for every questionnaire filled in ( to a max of £200)  to the British Red Cross COVID-19 appeal, to support the fantastic work they are doing supporting front line workers and those severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
