A recent multi-million-pound investment programme has seen brand new and improved student accommodation on 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 students’ needs and priorities. 300 of our new student residential accommodation places opened in 2012 and a further 450 new rooms were added in September 2016.

All new entrants are guaranteed a place in University managed accommodation. Please see our Accommodation guarantee for full details.

You can apply for accommodation online from 10 April 2017. Postgraduate and Undergraduate students are allocated separately.  We will also be offering a number of rooms to one semester students during the 2017/18 academic year.
