    Hi I'm a fresher and confirmed my place in Kincaid Court and I was wondering if it is possible to go inside and see the room beforehand?

    Also is there any way we can contact the flat manager by phone/email?

    Kincaid's Court is used as a hostel over the summer. This is their website here. If you contact them, you might be able to ask to look around a flat.

    That said, there's not much to look at - all self-catered accommodation is more or less identical, and you can get a very good idea of what the rooms are like from these 360 photos here. That's Darroch Court, which I remember being very similar. THat said, Kincaids has recently been upgraded, so it's likely nicer now.

    You won't be able to see it before you move in, no. You can look at a 'typical' floorplan here, though: http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departme...kincaids-court

    I remember being able to contact the manager of my self-catered places (Sciennes), to let her know I'd be arriving a couple of days later that some people, so must have been given contact details at some point, but I don't remember how long ahead of moving in I got the emails from them.
