Merchiston campus

10 Colinton Road, Edinburgh, EH10 5DT

Merchiston campus Merchiston campus brings together both old and new. The School of Engineering & the Built Environment, the School of Arts & Creative Industries, and our Students' Association call this place home, as did John Napier himself - he was born in 1550 in the tower that still stands in the courtyard.

Located in the lively Bruntsfield area, Merchiston Campus is home to art studios, engineering & design workshops, a computer games lab and a news room & film studios for all those creative types. It's also where you'll find the award winning 500-seater Jack Kilby Computing Centre - open 24/7 in our two main teaching trimesters. And that's not all... we're currently improving the last of our campuses for a facelift.

The Merchiston co-location project was completed in September 2013. We have a new student gallery facing on to Colinton Road, new sound-proofed industry standard music studios and teaching rooms configured to the needs of the students based here.
