With 260 rooms, Shrubhill House (formerly known as Liberty Village - Shrubhill) puts students at the beating heart of life in Edinburgh. Located just off Leith Walk, it’s a 30-minute walk to campus and even less to the historic city centre.
Studying at the University of Edinburgh accommodation? All of Shrubhill House’s en-suite rooms are reserved exclusively for you and feature a private bathroom, study desk and plenty of storage space. You’ll then share a full-fitted kitchen and living space with your flatmates. Looking for a little more independence? Our studio flats take away the need to share, leaving you to cook and relax in privacy.
Break away from the comfort of your flat and you’ll find a large communal area. Here, you can bond with your neighbours over pool and ping pong, or settle down for some work in one of our study areas.
Shrubhill House student accommodation in Edinburgh is blessed with an incredible location. Right on your doorstep you’ll find incredible pubs, bars and restaurants, and there’s even more options in Leith (just a mile away) and the city centre. Both Old Town and New Town are perfect for exploring, with hundreds of shops and eateries spread throughout the pretty, narrow streets.

Updates to the policy -
· No Visa No Pay: if a student’s visa application is rejected or if the UK university application is rejected, the student needs to send the rejection letter to Unite, within 7 days of receiving it, and before the tenancy start date. The letter must include a date and the student’s name. On production of this the student will be released from their tenancy. The T&Cs for these policies can be found on Unite Students website.
· Visa processing delay: If a student cannot get a visa on time to come to the UK and wishes to cancel their booking with Unite, but is unable to provide a proof that the visa cannot be issued: the student must contact Unite Students, or the agency who helped process the booking. Unite Students will support the students on a case by case basis.
· University / School intake delayed: if the start date of a course has been postponed to a later date, the student can provide evidence showing the new start date, then Unite will delay the tenancy start date to suit the new start date of the course. The student will only be liable for the rent from this new start date.
· Travel Ban: if there is a travel ban either in the student’s country of origin, or in the UK, preventing students from traveling as planned: students affected by the ban can contact Unite Students or the agency who helped with the booking. Unite Students will delay the tenancy start date until the end of the travel ban. The student will only be liable for the rent from this new start date.
· Early leave request: We are also aware that some students may want to leave the UK and return to China / to their home country over the coming weeks.
If a student decides to leave early then just to confirm that our early leave policy will be enforced.
That means they will be liable to pay the remainder of their tenancy unless they can find someone to take it over for the remainder of the term.

Q. Can I have friends/family to stay overnight?
They want you to consider your room as your home and are happy for you to have guests to stay. All they ask is that you let the on-site team know and that you consider your other flatmates and treat them with courtesy. You are responsible for any guests that you have staying with you and are liable if they cause any problems.
Q.Can I smoke in my room?
All properties are non-smoking throughout so please speak to your property team to ask where you can smoke. There are usually outside areas for you to smoke with ashtrays provided.
Q.What happens if I can't make a payment?
Your instalment due dates are outlined in your tenancy agreement and by accepting the terms and conditions of your contract, both customer and guarantor are accepting responsibility for payment on the dates provided. If you are unable to make payment for your rent, please speak to your property team. They will be able to discuss with you your payment options and advise you of any future implications dependant on how late the payment will be.
Q.Can you store my luggage if I get it delivered to site before I arrive?
As they will be preparing the room for your arrival, they will not be able to store any luggage for you before you arrive.
Q.What do I need to bring with me to check in?
You just need to bring a valid form of photo ID to prove who you are. There’s no need to print off your tenancy agreement or booking confirmation.
Q.Can someone else pick my key up for me?
No. For security reasons, we can only give your room key directly to you.
Q.Can my family or friends stay for a few nights after dropping me off?
You are allowed to have guests to stay, and one or two nights is usually fine. They just ask that you are considerate of your flatmates. For those first few days while you are all arriving and settling in, it may be better for your guest to make other arrangements if possible.
