Accommodation at Edinburgh Campus

Living on our beautiful Edinburgh Campus is a great way to meet others from all over the world and make lifelong friends.  Our student accommodation is conveniently located within easy reach of the teaching buildings, sports facilities, catering venues and the Student Union.

We have about 2000 residential places available at our Edinburgh Campus with a range of types and prices, from self-catered rooms to studio flats.

You will have your own study bedroom, the majority of which have en-suite bathrooms, and access to home comforts – broadband, a communal lounge, laundry facilities. Each hall has a warden who is there to help you settle in and sort out any problems you might encounter.  There is also 24 hour security on the campus.

A recent multi-million-pound investment programme has seen brand new and improved student accommodation on our Edinburgh Campus. We involved our students in the process of design, gathering their views and opinions to ensure the residences would be tailored to students' needs and priorities. 300 of our new student residential accommodation places opened in 2012 and a further 450 new rooms will be available from September 2016.

All new entrants are guaranteed a place in University managed accommodation. Please see our Accommodation guarantee for full details.

You can apply for accommodation online from 8 April 2016. Postgraduate and Undergraduate students are allocated separately.  We will also be offering a number of rooms to one semester students during the 2016/17 academic year.
