The Accommodation team helps to provide homes for more than 1,200 students across our four Edinburgh sites.

Campus Services

Campus Services are responsible for a range of offerings on campus and in student accommodation, from catering and exercise facilities to printing and security.

Coming from College

The Widening Participation team helps students who have come from college to get the best possible start at university. They provide support to students while they are still in college and continue to do so after they start at Edinburgh Napier.​​​​​

Dyslexia and Specific Learning Difficulties

At Edinburgh Napier, we support a significant number of students with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. The exact type of support recommended will depend on individual needs and circumstances.

ENSA

Edinburgh Napier Students’ Association (ENSA) is your students’ union, and all Edinburgh Napier University students, part- or full-time, are members of it. ENSA provides a variety of services for students, such as the ENSA Advice service, ENSA Sports and Societies, volunteering opportunities, events and entertainment, campaigns and representation.

Information Services and Libraries

The Information Services (IS) team manages the university's three libraries, which contain a wealth of resources and a variety of study spaces to suit students' needs. IS is also committed to delivering and supporting high quality IT resources and services.

International

The International team offers a range of advice and support to Edinburgh Napier's international students. They also help to organise exchanges, which allow students to study abroad for either a trimester or a full academic year.

Students for whom English is a second, third, fourth (etc.) language - and anyone else who has previously studied in a system beyond the UK - can access Edinburgh Napier's short courses, summer school and in-sessional support.

iPoints

The iPoints are students' first point of contact for information and advice when on our campuses.

Personal Development Tutors

Personal Development Tutors (PDTs) are assigned to students during their first few weeks at Edinburgh Napier. They are the first point of contact for any academic or personal issues students may experience throughout their time at university. ​If you don’t know who your PDT is, you can find out from eStudent Records, your Programme Leader or School Office.

Student Funding

Our Student Funding team provides information, guidance and support to a wide number of students, helping them to apply for a range of funding packages and childcare support.

Student Wellbeing and Inclusion

The Student Wellbeing & Inclusion team is here to help you feel content, healthy and supported. They offer advice and counselling related to health, wellbeing and inclusion to all students who feel they might benefit from it.
