The Residence Hall contains 469 single en-suite bedrooms and 7 twin rooms. Built around a new concept of community, it sits at the heart of the largest postgraduate student campus in Edinburgh and in close proximity to the city centre. What makes it unique in the UK is the large communal kitchen providing space for over 400 residents at any time to cook, eat, meet and celebrate community over food, while enjoying individually allocated cupboard, fridge and freezer spaces. The main common room on the ground floor can also be enjoyed by residents who choose to come together to study or celebrate, while the dedicated study room, TV room and bookable dining room allow for even more flexibility. And there are 4 bookable music rooms equipped with a range of different instruments.
