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

Just because Edinburgh is historical doesnt mean everything is historic.

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.
