Student accommodation in Edinburgh

From a castle on an extinct volcano to the Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival, this city doesn’t do half measures. The famous whisky walks are proof of that! Need a recovery day? Stroll along the historic Royal Mile and hike up Arthur's Seat for the views, then find a cosy café like The Elephant House (where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter!) and get stuck into the local shortbread. Visiting parents will love it. Chances are, you will too!

Easing you into Edinburgh

New to the city? Want to go exploring but not sure where to start? Take it from us, you can’t go wrong in Edinburgh – but here are a few suggestions to get you started…

3 spaces in Edinburgh

  • Arran House

    These ensuite rooms and private studios sell out, year after year. No guesses why…

    The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and the shops of Princes Street are just a 20-minute walk away. Same distance as the University of Edinburgh and Napier University. But why just sleep and run? There’s a great community here too. Hang out in the common room, games room and communal kitchen and you’ll find it. We also host regular wellbeing events, making sure there’s nothing between you and your best life.

    Closest university: University of Edinburgh
  • Brae House

    Edinburgh knows how to party. Join in and we’ll give you a great place to come home to, right on the edge of the Old Town (parents love it!).

    Princes Street is close by, along with the famous Royal Mile and the fantastic restaurants of the Omni-Centre are just minutes away.

    Work to be done? We’ve got study rooms and Brae House is a 20-minute walk from Edinburgh Uni. Brain feeling foggy? Try a head-clearing hike up to the stunning views from nearby Arthur’s Seat.

    Closest university: University of Edinburgh
  • Canal Point

    Living less than 15 minutes from Edinburgh Uni takes the stress out of morning lectures – but adds a whole lot of great things to your student experience...

    Nothing beats a lazy day in the nearby Meadows, one of Edinburgh’s best parks, and if you’re feeling cultural, there are art galleries and museums everywhere. The shops of Princes Street are close by and then there’s the famous nightlife – and you’re well-placed to make the most of it!

Edinburgh, the beautiful city

The hilly capital of Scotland is home to Arthur's Seat, an imposing peak overlooking the city with the best views. Hike up to the very top and you'll be looking out over the whole of Edinburgh. As well as being extremely social-media friendly, it's a great way to get your bearings!

The Royal Mile, running down from Edinburgh Castle, is packed full of things to 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 tastiest chicken in all of Scotland (with dozens of different flavours and coatings!).

It’s easy to understand why students love the city so much. So what are you waiting for? Apply today for the best student housing in Edinburgh!
