Welcome to the Student Accommodation On-Line Application Form

The personal and academic information you have provided in the Edinburgh Napier University 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.


For full information on how your personal data is processed please click on this link https://staff.napier.ac.uk/services/governance-compliance/governance/DataProtection/Pages/statement.aspx




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: We have limited studio flats to offer.  These are ideally at Slateford for Nursing & Postgraduate students and at Bainfield for mature undergraduate students.


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 ISEP/CIS (USA), IPAG or Moscow Group Bookings your spaces will be guaranteed as they have been pre-reserved in advance. We have 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 ensure you enter the correct end date of your tenancy and receive a confirmation email you have been added to our waiting list. As there is no guarantee of an offer of accommodation you will automatically be placed on a waiting list and spaces will be given out on a first come, first served basis to the best of our ability. If we cannot make you an offer we will assist you in looking in the private sector. Please note payment in full upfront is required for all 1 Trimester students.


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 09:30-17:00 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.
