About Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the beautiful, hilly capital of Scotland. When here, you will find no dearth of exciting experiences to be had and things to see. You can spend your time exploring the colourful markets of Edinburgh, sampling some delicious food and buying quirky warez. Or, you can visit the historic Edinburgh Castle and immerse yourself in some fascinating history and architecture. The national galleries and museums of Scotland are also found in the city and offer unparalleled information about the country, its culture and history. Works of some of the finest artists in the world can be found in Scotland.

Not just the city, you can spend your time discovering the neighbouring areas and visit landmarks like Arthur’s Seat or partake in the Edinburgh Festival which has been taking place since 1947! The excellent train connectivity means that you can go on train journeys anywhere throughout the entire United Kingdom and a direct train between Edinburgh and London actually takes less than five hours! If you want to spend time in the city itself, you can do so by visiting the many restaurants, galleries, parks, music venues, theatres and more!
Guarantor

Do you need a guarantor?

Without a UK rental guarantor, most landlords and agents will require you to pay the full year's rent upfront. We have partnered with Housing Hand who can provide you with a certificate of rental guarantee.

* Please note that additional charges apply for this service.

Cancellation Policy

A booking can be cancelled up to and including 31st July of the year when the student was due to move in. The booking fee is non-refundable.

After 31st July, if a student wishes to cancel a booking, they will remain liable for the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement, unless proof of one of the following can be supplied:

1.Their UK Visa application has been denied

2. They have failed to obtain the required qualifications to get into their university of choice

3. Extenuating circumstances e.g.: ill-health, family circumstances

Evidence of a) or b) should be supplied to iQ Student Accommodation within 72 hours of receiving official confirmation. 

Where the reason for cancellation can’t be proved in line with the above, the student will remain liable for the full contractual rent, unless and until a replacement tenant is found. The student is responsible for finding an eligible replacement tenant, although site staff will assist where possible. If a replacement tenant is found, the student will be released from the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement and any rent money will be refunded. The booking fee will be retained.

FAQs
Is the Student Accommodation site secure?
The physical safety and psychological security of the students is taken care of at the property. This is done through the use of CCTV cameras, on-site security staff and on-site teams available around the clock, 365 days a year. Secure door entry is also employed at the entrance to the property. This can only be breached if you physically open the door for someone. That is why we suggest you take special care to not allow people to tailgate you.
Can I book if I'm under 18?
The property does not accept guardianship of the students under the age of 18.
Can I bring a TV?
The short answer is yes, as long as you meet all the prerequisites. This means that before you bring a TV, you must know whether your room has a TV point. Your TV should not be larger than 21 inches and should be able to free-stand as wall-mounted TVs are not allowed. The property provides TVs and TV licenses in the communal areas but if you want a TV in your own room, you will have to arrange for a license yourself. If you have any more questions, you can check in with the on-site team.
Can I bring my bike?
Yes, most sites feature dedicated bike storage areas. As long as you are a resident at the property, have registered your bike and obtained a bike tag, you will be able to bring and store your bikes at the property.
Can I bring my car?
Yes, you can bring your car and most properties do have dedicated car storage space. Having said that, the number of car storage spaces are limited and are filled very quickly. Also to be noted is the fact that most of these places are situated close to the university and everyday amenities, makes the role of a car redundant. Therefore, we suggest that you consider all factors before deciding.
Can I bring pets?
Sadly, no pets are allowed at the properties. Exceptions are made in the case of residents who require assistance. In that case, you need to have your service animal or assistance animal trained and registered. When prescribed by a mental health professional, emotional support animals are also allowed at the property.
Can I choose where my room is in the building?
Absolutely, you can always take your pick from all the rooms available at the time of your booking.
Can I choose who I live with in a shared flat?
If the information about the gender of the people who have already booked a shared flat is available, then your allotment will be done accordingly. On the other hand, if you would book as a group, you can go through the group booking process and avail yourself of a flat shared with your friends.
Can I have overnight guests?
Guests are always welcome at the property. However, since you will be sharing the space with other people, there are a few house rules that you would need to follow. The guests must not stay for a period of more than three nights in a seven-day period. All guests must be registered. We ask you to keep your guests in your room and let your flat mates know every time you check in your guests.
Can I make a group booking?
Yes, you can make a group booking. The first way is to go online and select the same flat on the booking portal. Alternatively, if you can, you can visit the on-site team and make your booking through them.
Can I move out early?
You can move out whenever you want. Having said that, if you have signed a minimum tenancy agreement with the property, you will be asked to pay rent until your agreement expires.
Can I share my room with my partner?
If you and your partner are both students, then you can simply make your booking at any one of the dual residency studios and en-suites. However, if they are not a student, you will have to talk to the on-site team for further assistance.
Can I smoke in my room?
No, smoking is not allowed inside the accommodation. However, you can still find designated smoking areas outside, where you can smoke whenever you want.
Can I store my stuff with you over the holidays?
Yes, we do provide temporary storage solutions for your possessions. All you need to do is ask the on-site team.
Can I sublet my room to someone else?
Unfortunately, that is not an option. If you do need to move out, you can always talk to the on-site team and they can advise you on finding a replacement.
Can I swap my room?
Yes, if there is a room available after you have moved in, you might be able to make the switch. However, you will be required to pay a room change fee. You can talk to the site manager for further details.
Do I have to be home by a certain time each night?
You can come whenever you want. We only expect you to keep the noise levels to the minimum between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM.
Do I need to clean my accommodation when I move out?
Yes, please make sure that your room is clean when you move out. You can get access to the checklist and you simply need to tick all the boxes on it. Additional cleaning charges might have to be paid if your room is not clean.
Do you have laundry facilities?
Yes, most of our properties have on-site laundry facilities. You pay only when you use the facility.
Do you provide bedding?
Please bring your own bedding; like duvets, pillows, towels, etc. when you come to the property. If you are moving in from afar, you can always buy them locally once you arrive.
