Edinburgh Napier University Accommodation

Edinburgh Napier University Accommodation

Edinburgh has a whole host of comfortable, safe accommodation options available to you. There’s plenty to think about and it’s important you plan ahead, particularly as this may be the first time you’ve lived away from your family.

Edinburgh Napier currently houses 1500 students over 4 sites in and around the city centre. Our accommodation is affordable, modern and supported by a dedicated team of University staff.

Financial information

What are the advance rent payment & deposit amounts?

A prepayment of £500 advance rent payment is taken on application; thereafter your online application form is accepted.  No deposit is taken or held by Edinburgh Napier University – the £500 payment is offset against your rent. Please be advised that if you are allocated accommodation at The Student Housing Company a £250 deposit is taken to the start of your tenancy.

How can I pay my advance rent payment?

Payment can be made online by credit/debit card via the online application system.

Although it is NOT recommended, if this is not possible a cheque/bank transfer (which can take up to five working days) would be acceptable, but we must be notified by email (accommodation@napier.ac.uk) of this change in process. We must still receive this payment into the University account before the guarantee date otherwise the student will not be guaranteed accommodation.
