International exchange students are guaranteed an offer of University Accommodation provided they submit an accommodation application by the deadline. Students must have accepted an unconditional offer to study at the University of Edinburgh before they can apply for accommodation. Students will list their top 5 accommodation preferences as part of the application. While we can guarantee an offer, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that students are placed in their preferred accommodation, although the Allocations staff will endeavour to do so when possible. Offers will expire if not accepted within 7 days. It is therefore important that students regularly check their University of Edinburgh email account (and check their spam folders).
