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 2,000 residential places available at our Edinburgh campus with a range of room types and prices. Please note all of our accommodation is self-catered and single occupancy.
You will have your own study bedroom, the majority of which have en-suite bathrooms, and access to broadband and 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 Safeguarding on campus to assist with any problems that may arise.
A multi-million-pound investment programme has seen modern and improved student accommodation at 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 their needs and priorities. Three hundred rooms were opened in 2012 and a further 450 in September 2016.
The University guarantees to make an offer for accommodation to all eligible students in their first year. Please see our Accommodation guarantee for full details.
You can apply for accommodation online once you have an unconditional firm offer from 09:00 (BST) 8 April 2019. Postgraduate and undergraduate students are allocated separately. If we can, we offer rooms on campus to one-semester students each academic year although this is not guaranteed.
