Logo.jpg Edinburgh: University of Edinburgh



The hallowed halls which birthed the industrial age are embedded into the very fabric of Old Town. The city earns its name as the Athens of the North by its worship of knowledge and learning here. Edinburgh’s soul sings out from palatial sandstone colleges and revered research libraries, surging from the Nobel Prize-producing laboratories and rebelling on the greens. Most buildings concentrated here share the stone-clad Georgian style with classical peaks and columns. Three colleges jockey for room and the limelight on the grounds. Engineering and law students throng the Georgian corridors and much loathed Brutalist towers surrounding the Central Area, the original grounds of the university. Echoes of past graduates from Maxwell and Hume to Conan Doyle charging through column-lined courtyards. The grand library balances the sciences and law with the humanities, though only a fraction of the holdings are kept on site.

Covered walkways, underground corridors, and sidewalks push out into Southside and Old Town to follow the university’s expansion. Sixteen thousand students spill over into numerous classrooms and lecture theatres hidden behind neoclassical facades with World Heritage status. Pocket parks emerge at hidden turns, and narrow cobblestone wynds traverse the steep hillsides. Students throng at every turn and the university buzzes with research at the same hectic pitch as the Scottish Enlightenment.
