About Arran House

Arran House is one of three residences we have in Edinburgh. It’s just a 20-minute walk from the University of Edinburgh and Napier University, and a 25-minute bus ride from Heriot-Watt University. Wherever you’re studying, getting there will be a piece of cake.

The heart of the city centre is a 20-minute stroll away, so the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street (the main shopping area) and Edinburgh Waverley train station are virtually on your doorstep. You’ll be perfectly situated.
