Welcome to Milton Road campus!

Welcome to Milton Road campus! This is the building which supposedly looks like a ship (if you squint enough you can just about see it…) and is home to our health and fitness building, the Club.

Here is everything you need to know about the campus, and contact details for more information if we haven’t covered what you’re looking for.

Where is my classroom?

There are sign posts across the campus with room numbers to point you in the right direction, or you can ask reception if you need help. If you want to have a peak at what the campus looks like before you get there, take a look at our 360 degree tour of the college. Find it here.

What is an LDT and where do I find them?

Most full-time students have a named LDT who will act as your main point of contact throughout the year. Your LDT will support you and monitor your attendance and progress on your course.

Through weekly tutorials and regular guidance sessions, your LDT aims to make you more employable and/or ready to progress to your next course.

Their office is on the 1st floor in room 102E for students to drop in.

Who do I talk to about funding?

If the website doesn’t have the information you need, you can talk to our Student Funding team by emailing them at this address: studentfunding@edinburghcollege.ac.uk.

I have additional support needs – who can I talk to?

We provide confidential support and guidance for students with additional support needs. To talk to someone, you can email student.support@edinburghcollege.ac.uk.

I need to pay my fees, where do I go?

You must pay your fees before the start of your course. Read our guide here. You can pay for your fees at the cash office on the ground floor of Bolam House near reception. If you have any questions you can email Finance at cashiers@edinburghcollege.ac.uk.

What is ECSA?

ECSA stands for Edinburgh College Students Association. If you have an issue with any aspect of student life such as funding or academic problems, ECSA are there to help. Check out their website.

Advice and Guidance

Our Guidance team can help with advice on accommodation, money management, choosing the right course, finding part-time work, writing a CV and applying to university. You can speak to someone at a drop-in session 10.30am – 2.30pm (Mon-Fri).

Where can I eat?

The Food Court is located on the 1st floor of the Club. It is open 8am – 7pm Monday to Friday, with hot food served 8am – 2pm and 4pm – 6.30pm.

Where can I get a coffee/tea?

There are two places at Milton Road to get a coffee. Firstly, the shop in Bolam House (main building) opposite the reception is open 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday. Secondly, we have a coffee shop in the Club building on the mezzanine floor (up towards the Food Court), open 8am – 2.30pm Monday to Friday.

What is the best way to get to Milton Road?

By bus travelling from the city centre or East Lothian, you can get the 33, X44 or 113. If you’re staying in halls the X44 is handy to get home from a night out.

We recommend taking your bike – visit Cycle Streets to plan your route.

Can I park my car at the campus?

You can apply for a parking permit by picking up a form from reception. A parking permit must be displayed on your vehicle at all times. Please note that this does not guarantee you a parking space.

What else do I need to know?

Students can take advantage of the Club facilities where you can get a discounted membership.

On the top floor of the Club we have eh15, where our cookery and hospitality students learn their craft. Students can order from a top quality menu at affordable prices.

Our hair and beauty training salons partner with well-known brands such as Elemis and Wella. Students can benefit from discounted rates. Located within the Club.
