Very close to the uni. Price was reasonable and the management service was good. Enquiries could be accepted very soon by the accommdation office. The only suggestion is setting up some strict rules to the residents, self discipline is essential for everyone. Keep clean and respect to each other would always be the notion of sharing a hall.

The rooms are really modern and clean, maintenance issues usually get sorted straight away and all the RAs and Gemma the receptionist are lovely! they literally cant do enough for you. They make a special effort to organise a variety of social events not just during freshers but throughout the year (and they almost always involve free food- anything from bacon rolls at the hangover breakfasts to free dominoes at movie night). The bedrooms are miles bigger then they look on those awful university accommodation website picture and I'm yet to see one with that prison cell style window in the photograph! There are some issues with the wifi speed but the accomodation do their best to get key surf to sort it out asap as its run by a private company and can only be fixed by them. Truthfully nobody has a clue where you are when you say you live in leith but taxis to town are only a fiver. Its a bit of a trek to uni (20-30min bus ride) but I'd say its worth it for how nice the accomodation is.

Moved here from parkside halls just over a week ago, and I wish I would have moved here in September. Much better.

Moved into KES, was really impressed with how friendly key collection staff were aswell as the student reps and wardens. KES is in a great location on campus, less than a 5 minute walk both ways to either town or the uni buildings. The house is a good size with basic shower systems, locks on the doors and enough storage space in the kitchen for food etc. King Edward's Square is the cheapest accommodation by the uni at just over £80 a week, you get a good value for money for this price considering. Security is good, I wouldn't suggest leaving bottom floor windows or the front/back door open as the location of KES is open to the public. Would definitely recommend!

I had a great first year, being central on the campus and close to the town. I made great friends, and the communal area was great, being in a house like accommodation over a flat was definitely for me, due to the social lounge/kitchen area.

Beware you can be surprised how badly you have been ripped off you if you put in rooms 3 or 4! I spend £84 a week for a small room with barely enough room to swing your arms while room 11 is bigger than the share rooms and pay the same price! Location is very good, right on the doorstep of the university and next to a main road filled with shops. Hall management is extremely poor, despite constant reports of showers not working, electrics blowing etc. since the beginning of the year, nobody will come unless you literally harass the management to send someone! Cleaners are very particular when they decide to do their job. Yes university students can be messy, but if I can clean 11 peoples mess myself to do the cleaners job for her than why can't she? Common room is rather small and kitchen is even smaller, madness at dinner time when 11 people are all trying to cook in the oven that takes nearly double the time to cook food than the packet says. Overall BIG disappointment

Too expensive compare with other accommodations, I spend 15pounds more I can live in a small apartment with my own kitchen and en suit. The shower rooms are the worst with low water pressure and 2 of 3 shower room were not working the whole year, the temperature in room was so high and the heater was broken, can't even turn off and made the room became a sauna room. However KES is very close to the school and walk within 2 minutes.

Its the best location but the houses are falling apart and nobody ever fixes any broken object...no value for money and if you are in a shared room watch out for chronic master b's
