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 1,700 residential places available at our Edinburgh Campus, with a choice of self-catering flats or rooms available.

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 and 24-hour computer labs. Each hall also has a warden who is there to help you settle in and sort out any problems you might encounter.

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 residential accommodation places are in our new student residence development, which opened in 2012.

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 16 April 2015.
