Moving to Edinburgh

Information you might need if you are moving to Edinburgh. Relocation, accommodation, campus locations, transport, healthcare.

Relocation

Welcome to Edinburgh. If you are relocating to become an employee at the University of Edinburgh, you can find information about the University, the City and how we can help you with your relocation journey here.

Relocation

Accommodation

Edinburgh is a highly sought after place to live, as a result, accommodation (both to rent and to buy) is taken quickly. Most people who relocate prefer to find temporary accommodation (short term rental) and taking a little time getting to know the city and surrounding areas. Our excellent public transport network means that you can find convenient travel to all University sites.
