Advertise with us!

Our Edinburgh campus is home to over 10,000 students from across the globe and we can help you make a lasting impression with each and every one of them. Below you will find a list of the oppotunities we have available at the moment.

Given the current situation around the world, we are aware that our campus environment can change very quickly as Government restrictions are updated. For this reason, we have removed some of our "in-person" advertising opportunities (such as in-person stalls) so we can continue to offer a safe space for our Students.

This doesn't mean we can't help you, as we do have digital options that also have the benefit of reaching students who may be studying remotely at the moment, or not on campus due to self-isolation etc. 

If you'd like to chat through any of these options, or place a booking, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing

What can we offer?

Please note, the options and prices below are for term-time advertising opportunities. If you're interested in vacation time / Freshers Week please get in touch for update information.

Digital Screens

Around the campus, we have 6 screens in prominent areas with high student footfall, including the Student Union outlets, our Shop and one in the main University corridor. This is a great opportunity to get your business noticed by our students.

We offer two options to advertise through our social media, but do get in touch if you have other ideas for a social media campaign. 


As different platforms have different requirements, we will send you artwork specs once we know which channels are being used.

Discounts & Rewards - Coming Soon!

We're just putting the finishing touches to our new Heriot-Watt Student Union Discount and Rewards section. This provides a prime location on our website to provide a year-round presence for your business (logo, business name and offer details) within our student community, with an annual price of between £50 - £100.

The section will let HW students discover discounts and rewards available to them, both locally and nationally.
