I'm moving to Edinburgh from the states in 2 weeks to start graduate school at The University of Edinburgh. I have been endlessly searching for accommodations, but have not had any success.
I have been using all of the usual sites to search for an apartment (gumtree, citylets, zoopla, studentpad...) to send emails. While most of my emails go unanswered, the few that do write back say that they will only rent to people who are already in the city.
As you can imagine, this is quite problematic for me.
I feel like I may be getting a bit desperate! Does anyone have any suggestions for apartment hunting in Edinburgh? Or, even better, does anyone know of an open room!?
