To the east of Morningside and directly south of the University of Edinburgh lays Newington, another area that’s popular for student accommodation in Edinburgh. Newington Road (which is a continuation of Nicholson and Clerk Street) is home to several great places to eat on a budget and probably has the most typically ‘student’ atmosphere of any of Edinburgh’s districts. So if you feel that the refined areas like Bruntsfield and the Meadows don’t suit you and your flatmates, it can be a great place to look.
Student accommodation in Newington varies widely between purpose built halls and more traditional tenements towards the centre of the area, so have a look at everything that’s available and choose a property that suits you.
