Welcome to the Student Accommodation On-Line Application Form



In order to apply for student accommodation you must have an unconditional offer you have firmly accepted.

Postgraduate: I am sorry we are no longer taking applications from Postgraduate students as we do not have any spaces to offer 2nd Trimester and already have a number of Postgraduates on our waiting list. Please email accommodation@napier.ac.uk requesting information in looking in the private sector.

Please note: students staying for 1 trimester only will not have an option to set up a payment plan as payment upfront in full is required.

When you apply for student accommodation you will not be asked to make a £500 advance rent payment until we have reviewed your application and checked availability. Therefore you will automatically be placed on a waiting list and should a suitable space become available we will contact you by email. Please regularly check your emails as we do expect you to make £500 payment within 24 hours of being offered a place within student accommodation. We will only accept payment for the £500 advance rent payment via the online application system. Please note if students use any other method of payment eg epay you will not come under the guarantee.

Availability: we have very limited spaces available to 2nd Trimester applicants.  The spaces we have are mainly en-suite cluster flats at Bainfield £139 per week and The Student Housing Company £146 per week.

When completing the application form you will be expected to make a preference of four accommodation choices if applicable. Please look at our website carefully and check which developments are appropriate to your situation. Any unsuitable choices will be void.

Please note: unlike our other 3 sites The Student Housing Company do require a UK based guarantor unless you are making payment in full upfront.

Key collection will take place on 3rd January 2018 at Bainfield Accommodation from 10am till 6pm therefore please arrange your travel to ensure you will be able to attend this session. Entry prior to 3rd January 2018 will not be possible.

Please ensure you use an email account which is checked on a regular basis (every 24hrs) as this is our chosen communication method with students.

You can track the progress of your application by using your Edinburgh Napier Number to log back into our online system. Please note it will take 1 working day after receipt of your guarantor form for the online system to be updated and 3 working days for payment in full and recurring card payment information to be included.

After submitting your application form, if you want to amend any details, please email accommodation@napier.ac.uk within 12 hours of submitting your application form. Please do not re-submit a second application form.

Please note that £150 will be retained by us as a cancellation fee if you cancel your accommodation before the start date of the Tenancy thereafter the cancellation fee will be £350.
