Where to Stay

Edinburgh is a stunning, historic city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to world-renowned museums and galleries, as well as the Edinburgh International Festival and The Fringe. The nation’s capital also contains three universities, the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University, and Edinburgh Napier University. Unite Students has a wide range of outstanding student accommodation in Edinburgh, spread across the beautiful city.

The Bridge House student halls are located in the up-and-coming Fountainbridge area, at the start of the picturesque Union Canal. Conveniently located between the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier University, these modern, en-suite student flats are situated amongst two arthouse cinemas and a plethora of independent cafes, bars and restaurant, while being just a 15-minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and Old Town.

Just 10 minutes’ walk away from Edinburgh’s Old Town, Unite Students’ Chalmers Street student accommodation overlooks beautiful public park, The Meadows. If you’d like somewhere more exclusive to relax, these student halls also have a private garden, as well as a common room laden with sofas, study areas and pool tables. With options ranging from shared flats to self-contained studios, Chalmers Street is ideal for all students.

Murano House student accommodation houses 272 students, with classic and premium studios and en-suite rooms reserved exclusively for students of the University of Edinburgh. Equidistant between Edinburgh’s historic, cultural centre and the vibrant, trendy nearby neighbourhood of Leith, these modern student flats provide the best of both worlds.

Just over the road from Murano House, and only a 15-minute walk from the amazing views of the city from Calton Hill, is Shrubhill House. Ideally located for University of Edinburgh students and with en-suite rooms reserved for them exclusively, this modern, light student accommodation includes a large communal area with ping pong, pool tables and quiet study areas.

Our Salisbury Court student flats provide breath-taking views of the nearby Holyrood Park and the crags, lochs and glens within, not to mention extinct volcano Arthur’s Seat. They also feature one of the biggest common rooms of Unite Students’ plethora of student accommodation in Edinburgh, which features: study booths, pool, and foosball tables, board games and even a micro-cinema with theatre-style seating.

Just around the corner from Salisbury Court and only a 20-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station is The Old Printworks student accommodation. These student halls, sandwiched between the beautiful Holyrood Park and The Meadow, are modern and contemporary in design and even include an onsite gym for the fitness conscious students living here.

Finally, Sugarhouse Close student halls are located in the heart of Edinburgh’s beautiful and historic Old Town, as well as being ideally situated near the University of Edinburgh. Making the most of the stunning surrounding views of Holyrood Park and Salisbury Crags, Sugarhouse Close is bedecked with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass ceilings to provide students with a modern architectural marvel to call home. Perfect for rail travel links, it’s just a 10-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley.
