Welcome to Student Accommodation


We offer accommodation to new students and limited postgraduate students studying at Edinburgh Napier University.


For 2016/17, we have space for around 1500 students in purpose built accommodation and a nominations agreement with The Student Housing Company and Universal Student Living (Morrison Circus), third party provided accommodations.  All accommodation is on good bus routes to the campuses and offers "home from home" living.  We are continuing with ResLife, an initiative aiming to promote a community spirit within student accommodation, hosting a range of social activities for our tenants and promoting support networks within the University that are available to them.​​

Each site has a team of Resident Assistants (formerly Senior Residents) who act as a first point of contact if the students have any concerns whilst living at the accommodation.  They are older students who have lived in our accommodation in previous years and help students settle in to their new surroundings.  All sites also have a dedicated Accommodation Officer who is on hand to help when needed. They are the people to speak to if students wish to leave the accommodation, are having trouble paying their rent or having problems with their accommodation or flat mates.  


New Student Residential Developments

Th University is currently building a new development at Orwell Terrace which is located just a short walk from our Bainfield site.  It will house 246 students in 234 flats and is the first accommodation we manage to have some twin rooms with two students sharing a bedroom, a model that is the norm in America.  The majority of bedrooms however are single occupancy ensuite bedrooms.

The University also has a new development of 217 new en-suite student bed spaces on Slateford Road which opened in September 2016. The cluster flats will accommodate up to 8 students per flat.  The site is located on Slateford Road, near St Michaels church which is within walking distance of the city centre, our Merchiston campus and direct buses serving Craiglockhart and Sighthill.
