    I just heard back from U of Edinburgh Postgrad Accommodations and they have put me in the ugliest building in all of (beautiful) Edinburgh.

    http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fi...urgh_Place.JPG

    I have heard about gumtree.com, but was wondering if anyone might suggest other reliable websites/agencies (that they've had good experiences with) that might help me go about finding private accommodation.

    I really have no desire to move thousands of miles and pay thousands of pounds to live in a building that was built in 2006 in historic Edinburgh. Kind of a massive, MASSIVE let down.

    Any one have any suggestions? Have to let them know within six days if I want a place in their ugly building. :woo:

    Much indebted.

    It doesn't look that bad.
    Other accommodation websites are www.rightmove.co.uk and www.primelocation.co.uk. Not all agents accept students though.
    The university will also have a list of private accommodation available.
