Bayhead Bridge

Starting life at university can be a daunting experience. It may be the first time that you’ve been away from home and we appreciate that your new environment, and in particular your accommodation, play a crucial role in the success and enjoyment of your student experience.

Many of our students already live in the area, so we wanted to ensure that those of you who are coming from further afield would have access to some really first-class accommodation that provides you with all the services and comforts you need, offering a home away from home.

In Stornoway, we have the fantastic Bayhead Bridge Centre, which offers self-catering accommodation. Located on the picturesque waterfront, it’s a great place to be with easy access to the college and town centre, just ten minutes walk away.

The rooms are modern and well equipped with en-suite bathrooms, a study unit and internet access. It’s a bright, contemporary place to relax and socialise with your fellow students. With sports and games facilities available in the centre, including snooker, computer games, and a sports hall, rest assured there is always plenty going on.
