Heriot-Watt Accommodation

Edinburgh is one of the best university cities in the UK. It has everything, from a busy shopping scene and vibrant nightlife to rich culture and history. You’ll never be short on things to do in this iconic city, but having a great place to stay in the heart of the action will help you make the most of your time studying here. If your journey at Heriot-Watt University is about to begin, it’s important you have accommodation to match the premium education you’ll be provided with during your time in Edinburgh. We have a range of Heriot-Watt accommodation in the city centre, that offers excellent transport links to campus. 

Where to stay

Sugarhouse Close is our Heriot-Watt accommodation west of the city centre. Alongside the abundance of bars, restaurants and amenities, students living here will be right next door to the Museum of Edinburgh and a short walk from the National Museum of Scotland if they want to take in some culture during their studies. You will also be close to a swimming pool and sports complex with a gym. This is great for students keen on staying fit during their short breaks from libraries or nightclubs. In the city centre, you’ll find buses and taxis running regularly up to Heriot-Watt University campus, making it easy to commute in for lectures and study sessions.

The Old Printworks and Salisbury Court are just south of the city centre. Living here will put you close to the busy S Clerk Street, where you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to bars, restaurants, takeaways, and budget supermarkets. Starbucks and Papa Johns are a matter of minutes away, which could be a lifesaver during those post-night out lazy days. The Bridge House and Chalmers Street are our Heriot-Watt University accommodation west of the city, and closest to campus. This is a great place to live if you like being close to green spaces where you can meet with friends during the summer months. The Meadows is a beautiful park that is a great place for walks, or you can use the many sports pitches, including tennis courts.

Edinburgh has excellent transport links, so it doesn’t matter which of our Heriot-Watt accommodations you decide to stay in; you can count on an easy, reliable commute into university. All our accommodation includes great features like communal study and social spaces, outdoor spaces and even an on-site gym. You will find a great choice when it comes to room and flat sizes.
