University Of Edinburgh Tour

Self-guided tours

Follow our self-guided walking tours for a flavour of the University, the city and student life.

Self-guided campus tours

If you would just like to look around the University, we produce two self-guided tour leaflets: one for the George Square campus and surrounding area, and one for the King’s Buildings campus.

Accommodation tours

Access inside our student accommodation is not normally possible, as our students live here for the majority of the year, but we have 360° virtual tours available online so that you can see what our accommodation looks like inside.

You can get more information on University accommodation on the Accommodation Services website.

Hard copies of leaflets

You can find hard copies of the self-guided tour leaflets at the Student Recruitment and Admissions (SRA) office or the University’s Visitor Centre.

Open Days are an opportunity for you to come and see the University for yourself.

Open Dat student ambassador talks to attendees
It’s a great chance to find out about student life in Edinburgh from the people who know it best: our students and staff.

You can also explore the campus, learn more about the range of degrees available and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and job prospects.
