Canal Point – Edinburgh Student Accommodation

Canal Point is one of our three residence we have in Edinburgh. It’s our flagship residence and it’s in a really convenient location, about a mile southwest of the city centre, so it puts you within easy reach of well, everything!

Close to All the Fun
The following landmarks will be just 15 minutes (or less!) from your door:
– The University of Edinburgh – super-handy if this is where you’re studying
– The Meadows – one of the city’s glorious parks, good for jogging, strolling, and general chilling
– Edinburgh Castle – a must-see at least once!
– Princes Street – which is the city’s shopping hub
– Cameo Cinema for arthouse films, and the Odeon Cinema for blockbusters
– The National Museum of Scotland – with natural history exhibits and loads of other ancient stuff

And then there are loads of inexpensive bars and eateries in the vicinity for you to spend your evenings (look at our Edinburgh city guide for more info on this you can find it on our website!). And don’t forget: anywhere else you might want to go in the city is only a short bus ride away.
Edinburgh is well-equipped for student life, so you’ll get settled in no time at all, and there’ll always be something to do in your spare time.
