Student Support and Accommodation

Student Support and Accommodation


We can help you think through your accommodation options whether you want to stay on or off campus.

Accommodation Guarantee

Priority is usually given to students arriving for the first time in first year or as a postgraduate.

The University welcomes applications from students with disabilities and special needs. A number of rooms on the Edinburgh and Scottish Borders campuses have been purpose built and are fully accessible

We can also provide advice about how to find suitable accommodation off-campus for students with families.

Edinburgh Campus

We have about 1,600 residential accommodation places available, 300 of which are in our brand new student residences development.

Scottish Borders Campus

We invested £12 million replacing all of our on-campus accommodation with a brand new, state-of-the-art Jean Muir Student Village which opened in September 2012.

Orkney Campus

Our support staff in Orkney can provide detailed information on accommodation within Stromness and Orkney.
