Accommodation is more than just a place to live. We recognise how important it is to provide an environment in which you can thrive. Moving away from home for the first time should be exciting but it can be daunting too. We know it’s vital to make that transition as easy as possible for you and we are committed to doing just that.
We guarantee an offer of accommodation for all first-year undergraduate students from outside the city of Edinburgh, who are studying for the full academic year and who apply by the deadline. We aim to do the same for most students studying for part of the year.

All year round, Edinburgh is a cultural hub attracting the best in film, music, art and entertainment to its many cinemas, galleries, theatres, gig venues and concert halls.
