Welcome to Edinburgh!

When you arrive in Edinburgh, there are a few things you need to know about checking in to your University accommodation.

You should familiarise yourself with the arrival procedures so that moving goes as smoothly as possible. To support physical distancing within our residences, we are asking our tenants to arrive across a 7-day period from Saturday 12 September. You will have received a time and date that you are expected to arrive, please ensure you are not early or late for this time. However, if this time and date does not suit, please follow the process explained on your Arrival Pass. Please do not just turn up unannounced as we need to plan your arrival to ensure a safe and comfortable arrival day.
