Airlie Place


Airlie Place is home to Admissions and Student Recruitment, the Careers Service, Registry, and Research and Innovation Services.

If you look up to the end of the road towards the campus, you'll see the Union building. At the other end, just across the main road, you'll find a small grassy area with beautiful flowerbeds - the perfect place to catch some sun and admire the views over the River Tay.


Thinking about studying at Dundee? Whether you're a home student or from overseas, undergraduate, postgraduate or distance learner, the Admissions department will be able to answer your questions, or at least point you to someone who can.

The Admissions information office and enquiry centre is open daily from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, but check out the Admissions website for all you need to know about the applications process and other ways to get in touch.

The Admissions enquiry centre is number 41 on the campus map.

Dundee University Islamic Society

Islamic students use the prayer rooms within this building, with separate areas for men and women. During Ramadan, food is served at dusk to mark the end of the day's fast.

The Islamic society holds a range of events such as study circles, lectures, sports tournaments, dinners, parties, comedy evenings, Islamic awareness weeks, and charity fundraising.
