Based in Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University has its main campus in the city, along with additional campuses in the Scottish Borders, Orkney and Dubai. Both The Times and The Complete University guide rated it as the 35th best university in the UK for 2019/20, while Times Higher Education placed it within the top 300 globally.
Every year, Heriot-Watt University attracts more than 10,000 students to Edinburgh, meaning there is real competition for student housing in the area, with popular locations including Sighthill, Currie, Gogar and Baberton. To secure your preferred option, it is best to book in advance, and this is where Student Pavilion comes in.
StudentPavilion.co.uk is a fast-growing student housing portal and the new way to find Heriot-Watt University accommodation online. Our platform is also the first of its kind in the UK to gather landlords, letting agents and accommodation operators together, on a nationwide basis, using a subscription-style model.
For students, this means the opportunity to search all local listings and find almost any housing type. A smart search function also allows you to effortlessly sort the various advertised properties, based on the style of room you want, the weekly rent costs you are able to pay, the distance you are willing to travel to the university, and more.
Additionally, virtual reality tours are included within listings, alongside high-quality images, videos and floor plans. This equips you with everything you need to know before making a booking and can help to circumvent the need for physical viewings. Of course, in-person visits can also be arranged easily, for added peace of mind.
With Student Pavilion, everything can be completed online, with no need for the kind of time-consuming paperwork that often delays processes. A live chat function is available, any supporting documents can be uploaded, and you can pay your deposit using our secure gateway. Payment then results in the immediate pre-booking of your housing.
The service is also completely free for student users, with no hidden costs along the way. The student housing Edinburgh property listers have available starts from as little as £70 per week and users booking with us save an average of around £250 per tenancy, when compared to other UK-based student housing platforms.
Every advertised property is required to meet our strict quality standards, while all bookings are covered by a generous 24-hour free cancellation policy, giving you the chance to change your mind and receive a full refund. So why not join Student Pavilion for free today, search for your ideal accommodation, and pre-book it online?
