QMU at Festival Time


Coronavirus updates – for Festival visitors

Update 26th April 2021:  QMU is currently in Level 3 of the Scottish Government coronavirus restrictions.  You should only attend campus under the exceptions listed on the Scottish Government website

Some of the Accommodation Team are on campus whilst others are working from home but they remain contactable by either email stay@qmu.ac.uk or phone 0131 474 0000 (ask for Accommodation).  So please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries at all. 

We also have a dedicated page on the main QMU website with FAQ’s which are continually being updated.


Culture & creativity is at the heart of what we do here at Queen Margaret University, and Edinburgh, the Festival City, is on our doorstep.

Did you know that only 6 minutes by train (1 stop) from Edinburgh, there is affordable accommodation and rehearsal space, all available during August?

With a variety of performing arts courses that are relevant, stimulating, challenging and practical, plus a staff team that includes many dedicated industry professionals and practitioners, QMU has the facilities needed to be an ideal base for your Festival stay.

For guests staying in our accommodation, we can offer discounted rates for longer stays (3+ weeks).
