Edinburgh Student Accommodation
If you are coming to live and study in the city of Edinburgh, you have chosen the perfect location for access to beauty, history, culture, and nightlife – the quintessential blend for the ideal student experience.
Brae House benefits from all the benefits that makes ‘Edinburgh the most attractive city in the UK’ (The Independent, 2018). We are located right on the cusp of the famous Royal Mile in the Old Town; 300 yards away from the Scottish Parliament; and across the road from one of the royal residences in Scotland – the famous Palace of Holyrood.
Brae House is also sandwiched between two of the city’s most gorgeous green spots: Calton Hill and Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park. You should pop along, even to just see some of the views which stretches to some of the city’s coastlines. Our privileged location makes it hard to believe that we are located in the city centre.
Princes Street (great for big-name shops) are just a few minutes’ walk away. So is the Omni-Centre (great for bars, food, and a cinema), and the city’s main train station, Edinburgh Waverley – so going home for the weekend or holidays will be nice and hassle-free! We’re also super-close to bus links to the Airport, city centre and Ocean Terminal (if you fancy giving the Royal Yacht Britannia a visit).
There’s plenty of fun to be had inside the residence too. The big common room is popular with students who makes good use of lounge-like atmosphere, pool table, library corner, and big screen TV. We also have a glorious courtyard, with our own vegetable patch. The place is a sun trap and great for the environmentally conscious.
If you’re interested (and who wouldn’t be?), please be sure to take a look through our image gallery near the top of the page! Don’t just take our word for it either… see what our residents have to say about Brae House in the Testimonials tab.
Choose Your Studio
We have three types of studio to choose from (Classic, Ensuite, and Deluxe) – each with their own appealing features. 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.
