Your travel options for getting to campus

At Edinburgh Napier University we have three campuses at Craiglockhart, Merchiston and Sighthill, as well as our own student accommodation residences. In addition to this, there are also other sites across the city that we use for teaching and study.

There are a variety of ways to travel, including public transport, bike and car, so we’ve compiled a helpful guide to get you where you need to go!


Travel guidance during Covid-19

If you need to travel to the University, please plan ahead. Visit Transport Scotland for the latest Scottish Government advice and up-to-date guidance on public transport and active travel.

However you travel, please ensure you are very clear of the facilities available and rules in place before you start your journey. Keep in mind that many public transport operators are running reduced services.

We are always happy to help with travel advice. If you’re looking for more information, please contact


Cycling to campus

At Edinburgh Napier, we want to support and encourage active travel as much as possible, whether you're walking, wheeling or cycling to campus.

Both Merchiston and Sighthill hold Cycle Friendly Campus awards and we offer a range of support to students who wish to cycle, including storage facilities, maps and route advice, temporary bike locks, repair and maintenance sessions and security marking.
