Merchiston Castle in the centre of Merchiston Campus

The Merchiston Campus is home to the Schools of Art & Creative Industries, Computing and Engineering & the Built Environment. It is built around the refurbished shell of Merchiston Castle, the family home of John Napier, after whom the University is named. Merchiston Castle is also the ancient seat of Clan Napier. Merchiston Castle is currently a “Category A” listed building in Scotland due to its national significance.┬áThe campus also includes the 500-seat, 24-hour Jack Kilby Computing Centre, named after the inventor of integrated circuits and the handheld calculator. Facilities for students include a computer game laboratory, professional music studios and in 2016, TV presenter and University alumna Lorraine Kelly officially opened a new integrated broadcast journalism newsroom.

Edinburgh Napier Students’ Association (ENSA) is located at the Merchiston Campus .

Built around the historic 16th-century birthplace and home of our very own John Napier, Merchiston campus is home to our creative, computing and engineering students. Situated in the buzzing neighbourhood of Bruntsfield, independent cafes, restaurants and shops are just around the corner.
