The Old Fire Station - Aberdeen

256-262 King Street, AB24 5BU

Perfectly placed for the University of Aberdeen and North East Scotland College, the Old Fire Station is minutes from Aberdeen city centre. Studying at Robert Gordon? There’s a bus stop right outside for a hassle-free commute.

This grand old building on King Street was constructed from local granite in 1897. Now, it’s fully modernised and home to 273 students - every one with their own private bathroom.

The Old Fire Station’s spacious common room has a TV, table football, a pool table, vending machines, and plenty of comfy chairs for unwinding with your housemates.

Aberdeen’s superb sandy beach is less than a mile away. At the top of King Street, you’ll find the cobbled streets of historic Old Aberdeen. And at the bottom, the shopping, museums, galleries, and nightlife of Aberdeen city centre await.

What our students say


Student in Aberdeen

Unite Students made a very stressful event (moving to a different city) extremely easy and relaxed. All the information that was needed to check-in and move into the flat was made very clear and all the information was provided in one place, mostly the app which was very easy to use and understand.
