My student job with The Student Housing Company

I grew up in a small town in South West Scotland called Stranraer. My family is originally from Edinburgh so it felt very natural to come here. My first visit to Edinburgh wasn’t until two weeks before I moved into Brae House, so it was all very exciting when I arrived.

Life at The Student Housing Company

It’s been a busy old week here at The Student Housing Company! With Chinese New Year, Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day events happening across our residences, we’ve had a great time!

So what’s been going on where?! London kicked us off with a good old fashioned common room party at Depot Point in honour of Chinese New Year! As it was the year of the fire monkey we had a monkey pinyata, pin the tail on the monkey, and make your own decorations along with loads of food, drink and fortune cookies!  Valentines Day was just as busy with cupcakes, jelly beans, cards and love hearts for all of our residents!
