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.

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 and A-Level). Don't worry though, our guarantee date is noon on 21 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.

For students entering through clearing from GCSE England, Wales or Northern Ireland, we have reserved a small number of accommodation spaces through the Student Housing Company. These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. This has allowed us to extend the deadline for applications and £500 advance rent payments until noon on 25 August.

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.

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.

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 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 Students: There are very limited spaces reserved for you therefore you will be placed on a waiting list and should a suitable space become available we will contact you by email. Please note you will be expected to make payment in full upfront for the total length of the tenancy.
If you are part of the ISEP/CIS group booking your space will be guaranteed as spaces have been pre-reserved. We will also have a small number of spaces guaranteed and pre-reserved for veterinary nursing students these are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Key collection for student accommodation will take place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of September 2017 at Craiglockhart Campus from 10:00-17:00 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 24 hrs) 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.
