Upcoming Events

Sunday 26 January

Led Cycle
12noon, Bainfield Common Room
Fancy seeing the sights of the city from the seat of a bike? Our Sustainable Travel Officer is teaming up with our Student Accommodation team to offer a led cycle from leaving from Bainfield Common Roon at 12noon on Sunday 26 January.

We’ll take a trip around Edinburgh and stop off for some free refreshments too! The ride is completely free - you don’t even need your own bike, but you’ll need to download the Edinburgh Cycle Hire App​ to pick up a free hire bike.

All you need to do is know how to ride and dress warmly for the weather. We’ll mainly be on quiet roads and off road paths through the meadows and along the Innocent railway path.

Only 10 spaces are available, so make sure you book yours! To sign up, please email by the deadline of Monday 20 January

Wednesday 11 March

Accommodation Housing Fair
4pm-6pm, Bainfield Common Room
If you’re already starting to look ahead to the next academic year but don’t know where you want to live yet, why not come along to our Housing Fair?

While we’re generally unable to offer accommodation to students after their first year at Edinburgh Napier, unless in exceptional circumstances, we want to help as much as we can to make sure our residents are ready to take the exciting next step in their university journey.

We don’t make any recommendations for private sector housing companies or agents, but in the Housing Fair you’ll get the chance to meet a range of organisations offering private sector accommodation in Edinburgh. You’ll be able to check availability and make informed choices when it comes to securing your next place to live in September and beyond. | Edinburgh Napier Mobile App
