Find out about options for accommodation in Edinburgh during your studies
When moving to a new city and starting university, there are many things to consider when looking for somewhere to live.
The University of Edinburgh offers different types of accommodation for students to choose from. University accomodation can be rented out to live in during your studies, allowing you to settle in and make a home away from home. Students may alternatively decide to move into private accommodation (whether rented or purchased), or stay in their current living arrangement if they do not live far from Edinburgh.
The 'For Students' section of the Accommodation, Catering and Events website is the best central resource to refer to when considering any University of Edinburgh accommodation.
The information below provides you with help and guidance to be informed about the options available and further assist you in finding the right type of living environment to suit your needs.
