Campus information

Edinburgh Napier’s three campuses are equipped with cutting-edge, industry-standard facilities, including a biomechanics lab, journalism newsroom, games lab, and film, photography and music studios. You will be based primarily on one campus depending on your course choice, but you’re welcome to explore all locations and use the facilities at each.

  1. Craiglockhart: Home to business, languages and tourism students, Craiglockhart Campus blends the old and the new. Set within attractive grounds overlooking Edinburgh, facilities include 200- and 400-seat lecture theatres and language and multimedia labs. It's also home to the University’s innovation and enterprise centre, Bright Red Triangle. 
  2. Merchiston: Arts and media, design, engineering and the built environment, and computing students are based at Merchiston. Here, students will find the 24-hour Jack Kilby Computing Centre, the Edinburgh Napier Students’ Association, a computer games lab, newsroom, TV, radio and photography studios, and soundproofed industry-standard music studios.
  3. Sighthill: The Sighthill Campus serves more than 5,000 students and staff in criminology, psychology, law, health and social care, life sciences, and sport and exercise sciences. Facilities include life-like hospital wards, a clinical skills suite, sports science labs and a sports centre.
