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 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.

SQA Results will be published on 7th August.  From 6pm on 30 July Admissions will start processing admissions decisions and therefore systems will be closed for updating. As a result you may not be able to access the online application system until the embargo is lifted when results are published at approximately 9am on Tuesday 7th August 2018.

The system will remain live/accept applications until 2pm on Friday 10th August when the systems will be closed for updating by Admissions in regards to A Level Results which will not be published until 6am on Thursday 16th August 2018.

We apologies for any inconvenience. 

In order to apply for student accommodation you must have an unconditional offer you have firmly accepted. If your student record has just been updated by Admissions it will take up to 12 hours before you can gain access to apply for student accommodation.


If you have a conditional offer, you won't be able to apply until this is unconditional - for most, this means waiting for exam results (eg Highers, A-Level and GCSE England, Wales or Northern Ireland). Don't worry though, our guarantee date is 3pm on 23 August, so there will still be time to apply after the results come out and still be guaranteed an offer of accommodation. A small number of spaces will be reserved at our Bainfield accommodation for the Higher and A-Level Results release date and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


If you are ready to apply please have your debit/credit card ready as you will be asked to make a £500 advance rent payment (unless applying for 1 Trimester) when submitting your application form. Please note only payments using the online application system are acceptable no other payment options eg epay are accepted.


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.


Studio Flats: All our studio flats have been taken or are now pre-booked. 


Twin Rooms: We only have 3 spaces left for Postgraduates all other Undergraduate spaces have now been taken.

Ensuite Cluster: We still have availability.

Students Staying in a EH Postcode Area: Unfortunately you will not come under the guarantee of an offer of accommodation therefore please contact the Student Accommodation Officer to be placed on a manual waiting list accommodation@napier.ac.uk  


Postgraduate Students: There are a number of spaces reserved for you and these are allocated on a first come, first served basis to the best of our ability. If we have no spaces available after you have applied and made £500 advance rent payment we will contact you within 5 working days to arrange a refund.


1 Trimester: If you are part of the pre-reserved limited spaces available for veterinary nursing students and these spaces will be given out on a first come, first served basis to the best of our ability.


For all other students applying for 1 Trimester unfortunately we are now full and have a large waiting list therefore I would strongly advise you to email accommodation@napier.ac.uk and ask for private sector support information.


Returner Students (previously stayed in student accommodation/private sector): Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from returning students at this stage however there is information on the private sector available on our website.


Key collection for student accommodation will take place on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th of September 2018 at Craiglockhart Campus from 09:00-17:00 hours. Please arrange your travel to ensure you will be able to attend this session.


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.
