Loved the vibe of the university and found that the architecture was absolutely magnificent, close to the National Scotland Museum it is placed perfectly to walk towards almost anywhere. A must go if you're planning to go to the University in the future.

There are many buildings that encompass University Of Edinburgh. Checking out collages and universities all over the world this school rates.

We were really in Edinburgh to see the two universities, Edinburgh University felt more like the real thing, in the city with a rich history. Great to hear that every first year student is guaranteed accommodation. Good tour by a student.

This is one of the best universities in the world and the campus is full of that old school spirit. They allow public to enter freely, so use that opportunity and take a stroll. Very inspiring place.

Looking for nine single rooms in Edinburgh to see the Military Tattoo was going to be a hard task until a friend recommended the University. We all had a twin room with en suite, comfortable beds and daily cleaning. The breakfast was up to five...More

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
