Accomodation at Wallace College

It is recognised that accommodation is an important factor in the enjoyment of the students’ stay and specific needs and requests are carefully considered. We have a large network of local host families available to take students throughout the year. Some can offer single rooms and en suite facilities. We also have very good contacts with local guest houses and hotels.

In the summer months, including during the International Festival, we can offer self-catering apartments very close to the city centre. We also work with local 5* hostels located close to the College. Whatever kind of accommodation is required by groups or individuals we can usually find a solution which is ideal.

The families on the College’s accommodation register are inspected regularly, and have been selected for their welcoming approach to students and sympathetic understanding of cultural and religious diversity.

Accommodation is in either single or shared bedrooms with half-board (breakfast and evening meal) or just Bed & Breakfast. (Please note: Self-catering facilities are not available, except during the summer months.)

If you are arriving in Edinburgh by plane we can arrange for you to be met at Edinburgh airport and taken to your accommodation address in Edinburgh. Likewise, we can arrange transport to take you to Edinburgh airport when you are leaving.
