Brae House

Edinburgh Student Accommodation

Student Accommodation Special Offer

If you’re studying in Edinburgh and want to enjoy the best of city life, come and live at Brae House. You couldn’t be better placed for fun.

Brae House is right on the cusp of the famous Royal Mile in the Old Town, close to Princes Street (great for big-name shops) and St James Shopping Centre. The city’s main train station, Edinburgh Waverley, is within walking distance too – so going home for the weekend or holidays will be nice and hassle-free!

Brae House is also sandwiched between two of Edinburgh’s most gorgeous green spots: the Regent Gardens are literally over the road, and the enormous Holyrood Park is just a 10-minute walk in the other direction. If you climb up to Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the city and the coastline – and that’s something every Edinburgh student should do at least once.

There’s plenty of fun to be had inside the residence too. The big common room has a pool table, a TV, and loads of comfy seating and dining space. Take a look at the image gallery near the top of the page!

Choose Your Studio

We have three types of studio to choose from. Whichever one you go for, all of the following will be included in your rent:

  • All your water, electricity and gas
  • High-speed broadband and Wi-Fi
  • As much heating as you want (really handy in Edinburgh during the winter)
  • Contents insurance
  • 24-hour security
  • Maintenance service (if anything breaks we’ll fix it quickly!)
  • Access to the on-site laundry facility
  • Your own TV
  • Post and parcel service

We do have shared apartments with en-suite rooms at Brae House, but these are let exclusively to University of Edinburgh students, through the university itself. So if you’re attending a different uni but want the flat-sharing experience, you’re better off looking at our other two Edinburgh locations – Arran House and Canal Point.

Enjoy the Best of Edinburgh with Us

Brae House is an ideal residence for any student – whether you want to have non-stop fun or you prefer to take it a little easier.

If you’d like to come and view a few of our studios, we can arrange a viewing for whenever suits you. If you have any questions, take a look at our FAQs – and if you can’t find the answer there, just email us directly and we’ll get back to you as quick as a flash.

  • Best student accommodation out there! I stayed at Brae House for two years; my first year in a shared flat and my second in a studio. The staff were always lovely and caring, there was not a time they weren't smiling! I got to know them all well and will miss them now that I've moved out. The property itself is new, modern and clean, and if you do happen to have any problems then the staff see to it straight away. There's also events and competitions always being run so you won't ever be bored, and all of the amenities you'll need are just a short walking distance away. I don't think I can fault the Student Housing Company to be honest, so be sure to check them out if you plan to move to Edinburgh to study! My home away from home - I have some great memories there that won't ever be forgotten.


We are The Student Housing Company and the definition of hassle free living! Our rents are inclusive of all bills and you'll get up to 100MB WiFi. We also make 5 promises to you which we think reflect the quality of our accommodation and award-winning service.
