Edinburgh College of Art has a reputation as one of the leading art colleges in the UK. Founded in 1907, but with a history dating back to the 18th century, the College is home to over 1,700 full-time students studying a range of programmes across art and design, architecture and landscape architecture at undergraduate, postgraduate and research degree level.

The annual degree show is often a great place to pick up good, original art works. It is also used for functions and has a reputation for good parties and club nights (see Wee Red Bar).

Formerly a Fringe venue for Sweet ECA, and C Venues in August.

The Edinburgh College of Art merged with the University of Edinburgh in 2011.
