Teviot Row House is one of the Student Union buildings managed by Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA) and is the world’s oldest purpose built Student Union building. Teviot Row House was built in a 16th Century Scots architectural style with late Gothic features. It has a variety of catering and bar areas, a versatile debating chamber, a dining room, and many other meeting rooms.

Recent refurbishment programmes include the creation of the New Amphion coffee bar and restaurant on the mezzanine level – now with a new licensed bar – the Loft Bar on the Debating Hall level and the Chocolate Moose; the olde style sweetshop on the ground floor.

The Middle Reading Room and Balcony Room are the two bespoke boardroom style conference facilities, both having been recently refurbished; each with accommodation for 24 delegates. Larger events, requiring services for up to 250 delegates, may be accommodated in the Debating Hall.

Teviot Row House is centrally located within easy access to Waverley Station and the visitor attractions of the Old Town.
