Nestled at the foot of Arthur’s Seat (the iconic extinct volcano), the peaceful landscaped grounds are an ideal place to relax and unwind after a day exploring Scotland’s historic capital city. Within easy walking distance of Edinburgh’s Old Town and the city’s main attractions, our high standard campus accommodation is in an excellent location no matter what you have planned. Nearby, regular bus services reach most of Edinburgh, including Edinburgh airport.
With a total of 2,000 beds at Pollock Halls during the summer, we can accommodate anyone from the single traveller to groups of any size.
