Mossgiel is made up of six units each housing four single bedrooms, a kitchenette and lounge space. Bedrooms are light, comfortable and have good study and storage space. There are large indoor and outdoor common spaces with lounges, televisions and other recreational activities where the girls congregate to relax and socialise.
