Living right on Gorgie Road, the bus stop outside your door will take you to Napier University Sighthill Campus, Craiglockhart Campus or Edinburgh College Sighthill Campus in 20 minutes. If you’re studying at Heriot-Watt University or Edinburgh University, the bus will get you to lectures in just under half an hour. The regular buses will zip you in and out of the city, or you can hop on the train to explore the surrounding area.
Share recipes and make friends in the communal lounge and kitchen if you choose an ensuite bedroom. You’ll have a desk area, comfy bed and your own bathroom for that little added privacy. Or seek the total peace of a self-contained studio where you can use the kitchen to make a late night snack and spread all your books out to study. Take a break and watch TV from your bed in a studio, or in the shared lounge if you’ve gone for a more budget-friendly ensuite room.
Work up a sweat in the onsite gym, keeping fit so you can cycle the city’s hills. There’s a bike store and laundry to use and if you get peckish track down one of the vending machines to quash your hunger. Stay connected with Wi-Fi and high speed broadband. Internet’s included in your rent along with your utilities and contents insurance, which makes managing your money a doddle. Socialise at events planned by management, or save your pennies for nights out with new friends in the capital as you make the most of your time studying in Scotland.
