Welcome to the Student Accommodation On-Line Application Form

The personal and academic information you have provided in the Edinburgh Napier Student Online Application Form for Accommodation will be used to allocate you a flat to meet your individual needs.  We may try to contact you to gain more information and in the event you disclose a disability, you are transgender or have experience of the care system and we may share this information with Disability Inclusion, Health & Safety and Accommodation Staff to ensure we meet your needs during your stay within student accommodation. If you are part of a group booking eg ISEP/CIS your programme organiser may also be given information on where you have been allocated and what stage you are at in the process.  If you are allocated accommodation with The Student Housing Company all your personal information will be passed to this private sector provider that ENU has a nominations agreement with to allow them to contact you direct to start their individual application process.
