1. Can I pay my booking fee over the phone?
If you're having problems booking online please contact the accommodation team and we can try and assist you, if needed they’ll take your payment over the phone, securing your reservation.
2. Do I need to have a UK-based guarantor?
You do not need to provide a guarantor if you are paying bi-annually.
3. Can I choose who I live with?
We are more than happy to accommodate groups as well as individuals. Where you’re not booking in a group, we understand your flat mates will be key to your experience so when you book as an individual, we will ask you a series of questions to help us to match you with the perfect flatmates.
4. Can I live with my friends?
Yes you can share a flat, you need to let us know who you’re planning to live with. Provided we have the availability at the time of your booking, there shouldn’t be a problem. If you're looking to share a studio with a friend or partner you will have to book together. Please contact the site for further information on whether they allow dual occupancy as not all of our sites allow this. Some of our sites only allow dual occupancy in larger rooms.
5. Do I have to pay council tax?
Students do not have to pay Council Tax, but you must inform the council that your are a student & apply for exemption as this does not automatically happen. It is the responsibility of every student to apply for exemption, your University/College or accommodation provider cannot do this for you, though we can help you!
6. Is there an age limit for booking with CRM students?
We only accept bookings if you are over 18. This is due to the legally binding tenancy agreement that every tenant is required to sign when living at with CRM Students. We also can only accept people in full time education.

The famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival runs in the summer, filling Edinburgh with amazing talent and acts providing fun packed entertainment in hundreds of venues around the city as well as out on the streets of Edinburgh.

Local pubs, clubs, restaurants and more...
At Elliott House you could not be better placed to spend your days as a student. There are many great bars, pubs and local interests on the door step. We’ve put together a few of the favourite local hot spots:
Ting Thai Caravan, Teviot Place.
“A former festival pop-up, this Hidden Gem is very popular spot amongst students. Stop by for authentic Thai food, freshly cooked in a very casual and cellar style setting with the option of sitting inside at their long communal tables or taking it out in their recyclable boxes to the Meadows on a sunny day. Open for both lunch and dinner, the average meal costs between £5 and £7.”
Mary’s Milk Bar, Grassmarket
“Top up your calcium intake at Mary’s Milk Bar. Far tastier than a glass of milk, this cute little ice cream parlour that specialises in authentic gelato, made with fresh milk. A top treat stop when you’re in need of something sweet, Mary regularly changes her flavours so there’s always another temping reason to pay a visit. If you’re a chocolate lover, Mary’s silky smooth truffles are a must and a great pick me up if exam stress has hit you hard.”
Black Medicine Coffee Co, Nicholson Street
“All-nighters, early starts, a hectic social calendar and busy study schedules all call for a good cup of coffee. When you’re in need of a caffeine top up we recommend Black Medicine Coffee Co. The baristas know how to make a good coffee from freshly ground organic beans. Its cosy interior also makes it a relaxing spot to get some much needed studying done.”
Hula Juice Bar
“Hula specialise in thirst quenching juices and smoothies which are packed with fresh fruit and veg, plus they only use fresh raw ingredients so you know that they’re extra good for you. If you need something a little more filling then their colourful café and gallery on West Bow also serves tasty porridge for brekkie and a brilliant range of bagels for lunch.”
The Elephant House, 21 George IV Bridge
“Opened in 1995, The Elephant House has established itself as one of the best tea and coffee houses in Edinburgh. Made famous as the place of inspiration to writers such as J.K. Rowling, who sat writing much of her early novels in the back room overlooking Edinburgh Castle. Experience the magic yourself”
The Cabaret Voltaire, 36-38 Blair St
“This cavernous live music venue is a student favourite. It is housed in historical vaults that make it the perfect setting for indie gigs. Drinks prices that make a tenner go further than usual and help you loosen up and sidestep to the dancefloor!”
