Pollock Halls of Residence
Students and staff stay in single rooms in University accommodation at Pollock Halls in Edinburgh, which is situated adjacent to Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano. Students can book either standard on en-suite accommodation. Pollock Halls is within walking distance of the city centre and the main university area. It is a modern complex of student residences, with a computer lab, a refectory, a restaurant, shop and bars. Internet access is also available in all the student rooms if requested and in the University computer facilities and the Main Library. Teaching takes place at the George Square site of the University of Edinburgh, which is a fifteen-minute walk from the residences.
All accommodation fees include breakfast and dinner, while the fees for four or six weeks also include these for the weekends between term 1, 2 and 3.
50% of the course and accommodation fees will be retained for cancellations after 1st June. Refunds are not normally made for either course or accommodation for cancellations within 2 weeks of the start of the Summer School.
Students who wish to attend SUISS without booking the School's residential facilties may do so, in which case they must make their own accommodation arrangements and inform the School of their Edinburgh address.
For students wishing to attend the Modernism course and the Creative Writing course whilst staying on campus between the two modules without attending the academic programme, we offer the possibility of booking a study week with SUISS, which covers the use of Edinburgh University's library, lunch on weekdays and all evening events. If chosen, accommodation should then be booked for the whole course (3 terms).
