Holyrood building

The Holyrood Campus is located just off the historic Royal Mile (Canongate) and is within easy walking distance of the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace.

COL Reception can be found in Room G23, just off the main entrance foyer.

Many COL classes are taught in this building, although some are also held on other campuses, such as the George Square campus and the Lauriston Place campus (Edinburgh College of Art).

Students will be sent clear instructions about where their classes will take place prior to the start of the course.
