As the event coincides with the start of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, accommodation will be in high demand so we recommend that you book as early as possible.

A map of suggested nearby accommodation is available.

As many hotels will have limited availability for this period we recommend exploring the University of Edinburgh’s own accommodation options, run through Edinburgh First. These include the Masson House and Salisbury Green Hotels, the Kenneth Mackenzie B&B and other self-catered apartments and student halls, all of which are located conveniently close to the Central Campus. Check availability and book via the Edinburgh First accommodation booking page.
