The two main options for those who need a place to live in Edinburgh are University accommodation or a property in the private sector.
We have 234 purpose built flats with space for 1,298 students in the city centre. We offer both en-suite and non en-suite accommodation.
Rent ranges from £103 - £133 per week depending on your allocation, and covers heating, electricity, internet and basic contents insurance.
Student Accommodation is now full and our guarantee date has now passed. Unfortunately we are no longer taking applications so we would advise that you look in the private sector for accommodation.  We are running a support service at Merchiston Campus between 25 August and 26 September to assist with your search. Full details and information on private renting can be found on our private sector pages.

Georgi Karapeev
Course: Digital Media Global
Top tips for new students: Make sure you find a good balance between uni work and your actual professional experience: both are important, but different. Find out what is the life you would like to lead and what personal skills and qualities you will need for that. Then invest your time and effort into achieving it and don’t be afraid to try new things that you’ve never been confident enough to do. For uni I’d give you the sae advise - know what you want to study and find a way to do it. You wouldn’t believe how many opportunities you can find if you’re just brave enough to ask for them.
Next step: It’s an intense time for me in terms of personal and professional development. I’m letting go of all the burden I’ve been taught to carry and I’m forming my own views and lifestyle. Developing as a personality and investing time in progressing in the areas of sport, art and spiritual growth towards the strongest version of myself. Uni wise, I am going on an exchange in Germany for a semester and I’m really looking forward to that step.

After gaining a few more years experience, I will return to university for more studying. And hopefully, if there is a chance, I will come back for Napier.

Course: BA (Hons) Marketing Management with Consumer Studies (Graduated July 2014)
Top tips for new students: Enjoy Edinburgh - it is a beautiful city with lots of exciting things to experience. In your first year you should not only focus on the start of your career, but also enjoy your surroundings. Having lived here for four years, I am planning to stay for many more. It really is a perfect city to both study and reside in. As for study life I recommend you take advantage of the facilities and services Edinburgh Napier provides. There are a variety of academic, career-building and professional development sessions available, and all are paramount to excelling in your career path. As well as enjoying the study life, socialising is crucial. Napier Students Association offers a variety of sports and societies to get involved in, as well as lots of social and volunteering opportunities. Get involved, get inspired, and succeed!
Next step: I am proud to say I have graduated from Edinburgh Napier University - it really has been a remarkable experience. From working as Programme Rep for the Napier Students Association, to working as a Student Ambassador, and Senior Resident for Student Accommodation, as well as securing a work experience placement in year 3, it is safe to say that Edinburgh Napier has developed my skills-set and experience to a great extent.
I have always had a great interest in both education and marketing, and the teaching excellence at Edinburgh Napier has inspired me to pursue a career in lectureship. The support received by my lecturers and support staff has been phenomenal. I couldn't recommend this university more.
