    Maybe email the accommodation office at the uni, they must have current students advertising with them?

    Or try any FB groups, or any estate agents around the uni/town centre?

    Try websites like findaroom or this http://www.spareroom.co.uk/flatshare..._id=328649434& or this

    But please consider that Edinburgh is really quite expensive and if you rent privately you may well have to rent for 12 months rather than just for term time which means you are paying for 3 or 4 months when you may not be there. You will also have to pay bills on top of the rent.
    You are also unlikely to find first years to rent with as most will go into university accommodation
