Family accommodation

University accommodation

The University of Edinburgh provides couples and family accommodation for students who wish to bring their families with them while studying at the University of Edinburgh.

While this type of accommodation is not guaranteed, we do have a large number of couple and family flats to offer students.

Information about family accommodation at the University can be found on the Accommodation Services website.

Private sector housing

Alternatively you may wish to find rented accommodation in the private sector. There are many useful websites where you can search for accommodation in and around the city of Edinburgh. The Edinburgh University Students' Association Advice Place lists these on their website along with helpful information on tenancy rights under Scottish housing law.
