The Old Town Campus lies in the heart of the university quarter playing host to iconic venues such as the McEwan Hall and Playfair Library. These venues are complemented by the modern facilities of lecture venues which become available out of term. Clustered around Bristo Square, George Square and Old College, the Campus can host conferences & events for up to 1,000 delegates, accommodating plenary sessions, break out rooms as well as exhibition and catering areas. It is easily accessible by foot and a short walk from Waverley Train Station as well as all the attractions Edinburgh has to offer.
For residential conferences, you will find the University’s hotel accommodation located close by with KM Hotel & Apartments a mere 5-minute walk away and The Scott and The Scholar Hotels a 20-minute walk. During the Summer months, delegates can make use of the University Campus accommodation also a 20-minute walk from the Old Town Campus.
The health and safety of our customers, delegates and staff is our number one priority, and we are committed to delivering clean and safe environments which is why we have introduced CONFERENCE AND EVENTS PROTOCOLS.
