Our student accommodation in Edinburgh, Gateway Apartments, started its term in style with a double celebration at Electric Circus last week.  Gateway Apartments hosted a welcome party and 1st anniversary event at the local nightclub and karaoke bar.

An array of delicious cocktail pitchers and a game of Gateway Bingo started the night and we saw the competitive side to our students during the scavenger hunt.  Bar tokens were on offer and let’s just say the residents were very eager to get their hands on some freebies!

The photo booth also proved a hit; the winner of our Photo Booth Challenge was John Saganty whose prolific photographic presence and cheeky smile earned this happy chappy a voucher for two hours of karaoke at Electric Circus.

The highlight of our Edinburgh student accommodation celebration was the enormous cake made by local baker/DJ’s ‘Kitchen Disco’. The munchies were also kept at bay with a popcorn machine and marshmallow eating contest.

The night didn’t end there as the students danced into the early hours sampling the lush cocktails.  Eager to display their artistic side, it felt at times we were auditioning for Diversity due to the athletic dances moves, and as for the animal impressions – speechless!

It was the perfect way for our old and new residents to get to know each other as well as celebrating the first anniversary of our Gateway Apartments, student accommodation in Edinburgh.

We know this will be the first of many fun events for this year’s students.
