Chalmers Street - Edinburgh

Chalmers Street - Edinburgh

36 Chalmers Street, EH3 9FE

Just 10 minutes’ walk from the University of Edinburgh campus, Chalmers Street is set in a beautiful part of the city, overlooking the Meadows and just a short walk from Edinburgh Castle and old town.

The 251 rooms here offer a range of options, from rooms in shared flats (with or without your own private bathroom) to self-contained studios where all the facilities are just for you.

Chalmers Street backs onto the Meadows, so you already have an enormous green space to enjoy. But this property also has a lovely private garden accessible via the ground floor common room. Inside, you’ll find a free pool table, sofas, a TV, and a secluded study area.

With a UNESCO World Heritage site right on your doorstep, you’ll feel like a wide-eyed tourist for at least your first semester. But you’re also close to places like Bruntsfield, Morningside, Southside, and Newington - all bursting with character, coolness, and great places to eat, drink, shop, and live like a local.

What our students say


Student in Edinburgh

The staff and student ambassadors have been incredibly friendly since I arrived. Theyre approachable and fun to be around and great to talk to. My room is gorgeous and super well thought out and is laid out perfectly. There is plenty of storage and everything was clean and tidy. The kitchen is high spec and also has great storage. The location of the property is amazing and the amout of natural light in my room is perfect. The facilities are great and I love the free printing. Our welcome party was amazing - so much food! Im really looking forward to future events.
