Opened in 1889, Teviot Row House is the oldest purpose-built student union in the world.
Its historic and architecturally unique rooms feature cosy nooks for intimate gatherings as well as large, open spaces for formal events.
Historically, the only bar in Teviot was the Teviot Lounge, an ambient space which often hosts board game nights.
Now Edinburgh students can choose from a variety of comfortable rooms in which to relax, socialise or study.
The heart of Teviot is the Library Bar. Redeveloped in 2007, this stylish yet comfortable bar is much loved by students.
Other favourites include the stylish Loft Bar, with its beautiful roof terrace, and the New Amphion, which boasts all the characteristics of a comfortably chic bistro.
The traditional Dining Room sits grandly in the centre of Teviot and is used for functions and reception dinners.
Also used for formal receptions, the Debating Hall, with its high ceilings and open dance floor, frequently hosts traditional ceilidhs, club nights and theatre evenings.
Teviot also sports a regular night club venue, the Underground. This dark, grungy club at the very bottom of Teviot features a full bar and dance floor and is used for live music and cabaret.
