Student Flats to Rent in Edinburgh

Student Rooms, Bedsits & Flatshares in Edinburgh

Despite the higher than average rent prices for the UK in Edinburgh, the city is also home to lots of affordable student accommodation for students attending the various universities in the city. Some of the main student areas are Southside, Newington, and Tollcross.

These districts are close to university buildings and the city centre, giving students access to everything they need for their studies and social life in the city. They are also affordable to cater to the students living there and feature plenty of student accommodation.

Students can choose between privately owned accommodation if they want to rent entire student apartments to share with fellow students, or a single student room in shared accommodation such as iQ Fountainbridge and Canal Point Student Accommodation, both located in the Tollcross area, for example.

Student Rooms in Edinburgh

Approximately one-fifth of Edinburgh’s population is made up by students attending one of its three universities, so this makes up a big part of the city’s demographic that needs catering to. When students branch out from living in halls, like most do after their first year, there are lots of student-friendly areas providing affordable student rooms in Edinburgh.

For those studying at The University of Edinburgh, Newington is a popular area to live due to its proximity to campus. Tollcross is the place to be for students at Napier Technical College, and both sets of students are known to live in Bruntsfield and Marchmont. There is a great social scene within each university and between universities, as well as the obligatory friendly rivalry between them. Student rooms in Edinburgh are available in lots of places around the city, not just in these four areas.
