I booked my accommodation at Potterrow for my one-year MSc at the University of Edinburgh and it has been the best decision. I live super close to George Square campus (central campus) so I can go to Uni or come back to eat dinner in only a few minutes! no one lives closer to the central campus than the students at Potterrow!

Also, the place is all new (including the furniture) and at everything is fixed immediately in case something happens!

I also like that the admin team of Potterrow is always super friendly and warm!

Definitively is a great choice!

Amazing! I would 100% recommend this accommodation to any student. You literally cannot get a better location for studying at Edinburgh University.



The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are lovely, the kitchen is great and the staff are so kind and helpful. Any issues will be resolved asap as long as you report them. Every friend who came to visit complimented it - I can't think of a better place to live in town. There are shops and restaurants near by and it is a central and safe area.



The bins outside didn't bother me at all - like in the other review - and if you feel like you cant study here (don't know why that would be) the library is literally on the campus across the road so no issues.



The staff are so kind and try their best to match people into flats at the time of booking. You can make requests e.g. first years, by sex etc but obviously this cant be 100% guaranteed. If there are problems they are happy to help and will move you in to a flat you feel more comfortable in.



Would not hesitate to recommend Potterrow, I am so glad this is where I chose to live!



Best accommodation in Edinburgh!

Super Good Place for GS

The best is the location for GS. I could go almost GS lecture rooms within five mins. The silver flat is awesome. Room is bright and well-decorated with a big french window which I like most. And the kitchen, bathroom are big and comfortable. The light bulbs firstly went off every couple weeks, but they replaced the new LED lights, which are better. All the staff are easygoing and kind to us.



I think the social places are still supposed to be improved. It's better to have a TV in every flat, and the washing machines are very few! Two blocks just share TWO!!

The rooms, bathrooms, & cooking facilities are quite nice. The updated lighting is lovely for focusing & easy on the eyes. The staff is really nice, friendly, & helpful. Only a 2 minute walk from the bus stop (convenient for kings buildings & vet students). So many convenient stores & such nearby (easy walking distance). The only downside is if you face onto the back of festival theatre as trucks come at any hour, but this noise can be drowned out with a fan (even as a light sleeper).

I had the most terrible experience here. They are racist, incompetent and a nightmare to live with. The only plus is the location. Light bulbs go off every couple of weeks, keys don't work, handles fall off things.



My packages were stolen, I am a 22 year old female and they were going to make me room with a 50 year old shady man. Had to fight to make sure they didn't, turned out he was really a creep, made passes and 18 year olds in the building making them uncomfortable. Imagine if I had to live with him.



They also made me move rooms twice, threatened me and overall it was hellish. Don't believe the website, most of their rooms have only half a window with a view of the dumpster they are selling as a silver room. Be warned, their renovations are not great, DO NOT LIVE HERE.
