University of Edinburgh Student Accommodation

We guarantee an offer of accommodation for all eligible undergraduate students from outside Edinburgh.

Moving away from home for the first time is exciting but it can be daunting too. We’re committed to making that transition as easy as possible for you.

We realise you need more than just a place to live. We know how important it is to provide an environment in which you can thrive. That’s why we guarantee accommodation for as many new undergraduates as possible.

We can help you find somewhere to live and assist with any housing issues.

Our guarantee

We guarantee an offer of accommodation for all new undergraduate students from outside the city of Edinburgh who are studying for the full academic year and who apply by the deadline.

We also aim to do the same for as many students as possible who are studying for part of the year with us.

See our Accommodation website for more information, help and advice to help you find your new home in Edinburgh.
