Student Accommodation in Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the Scottish capital, offers a student living experience few cities can match. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with some of the most historic buildings in the whole of the UK (including Edinburgh Castle, home of the famous Hogmanay parties).

Eating in Edinburgh

If you enjoy the cosy atmosphere of a traditional pub, The Greenmantle could be just what you’re looking for. With regular quiz nights, live music, poker, pub food and vodka-mixers for just £2, this student pub is a great place to have a few drinks after lectures or at the start of a night out.

Easing You into Edinburgh

We know how important it is to settle in and make friends as part of your university experience, so we’ve designed our buildings with this in mind. All of our residences have their own communal social spaces, including common rooms, study areas, courtyards - some even have cinema rooms and gaming areas!

The beautiful city of Edinburgh

The hilly capital of Scotland is home to Arthur's Seat - an imposing peak which sits above the city. The breathtaking views from the top give you a superb overview of the centre of Edinburgh, which makes it easy to spot new places you want to go and explore.

The Royal Mile, running down from Edinburgh Castle, is packed full of things to see and do, including the wonderfully unusual Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Vaulted basement shops and restaurants line the street and the walkways coming off it - see if you can find Wings, for the best chicken in all of Scotland (in dozens of different flavours and coatings!). It’s easy to understand why students love the city so much. So what are you waiting for? Time to apply for the best student housing in Edinburgh!

Edinburgh also plays host to the much-loved and world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as well as rugby internationals at Murrayfield Stadium, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and countless more highlights. The quality of student accommodation in Edinburgh is matched by the lifestyle on offer for those living here. It’s a classic university city, with a significant educational pedigree. As you’d expect, it also has many student hotspots, including Princes Street, where you can find a range of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.
