Edinburgh Student Life

Edinburgh Campus, Kings Buildings

The City and Campus

Edinburgh, with a population of half a million people, and an unusually large and diverse student population (over 62,000 students study in Edinburgh) offers community, variety and a wealth of activities to recommend it as a popular place in which to live and study.

Edinburgh's historical centre, castle, elegant suburbs, parks and gardens combine well with contemporary, modern development. Its east coast location means you can easily choose to be by the sea or walking or skiing in the Pentland Hills.

Our Edinburgh Campus is situated to the south of the city as part of the University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings Campus, which hosts multiple bars and libraries and has direct bus links straight into the city centre.

Student Presidents

Founders of the Society for Animal Science:

"The Society of Animal Science is for students with an interest in various areas of animal science. We often hold lectures 1-2 times per month throughout the academic year and aim to bridge the gap between researchers and the student body, as well as inspire students with the variety of career paths available to them"

President of the Edinburgh Green Feet Environmental Society:

"The Green Feet society's aim is to provide students from all courses access to course-related activities, current issues, award schemes, training courses, and social events, for example: guest speakers, John Muir Trust awards, rock climbing, white water rafting, orienteering, and first aid training, as well as charity and conservation tasks. We're always open to suggestions and have no restriction on events and activities - after all - our environment is everything around us!"
