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!

3 spaces in Edinburgh

  • Arran House

    Arran House is one of three residences we have in Edinburgh. It’s just a 20-minute walk from the University of Edinburgh and Napier University, and a 25-minute bus ride from Heriot-Watt University. Wherever you’re studying, getting there will be a piece of cake.

    The heart of the city centre is a 20-minute stroll away, so the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street (the main shopping area) and Edinburgh Waverley train station are virtually on your doorstep. You’ll be perfectly situated.
