Student Life

Campus life

  • The University is conveniently located on a city centre campus, with all of its buildings within a quarter of a mile of each other. Shops, recreational facilities and the main bus and train stations are a short walk away. 
  • The main buildings - Old College, Kydd Building, Student Centre and Hannah Maclure Centre - are in the Bell Street complex, grouped around the University's award-winning library.

Although a small university, Abertay offers a wide range of clubs from the traditional sports such as rugby and football to the more diverse sports such as triathlon and dance.
