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 accommodation 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.
When considering any University of Edinburgh accommodation, University Accommodation, Catering and Events (also known as ACE) is responsible for managing University of Edinburgh owned accommodation. They deliver a wide range of first rate student accommodation, catering options and Residence Life support to the many University’s students who live within University 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.
