City campus guided tour

City campus

You don’t need to worry about cars or taxis when the accommodation, library, teaching areas, students’ union, and gym are all right next to each other. There are green spaces, study spaces, and chilling places, right on your doorstep.

By living on campus you’ll be in the heart of the city. You’ll be just a short walk from cultural attractions, cafes, restaurants, shops, and bars. The train and bus stations are also within a short walking distance, handy for those days exploring the best that Scotland has to offer. Our campuses at Ninewells Teaching Hospital and Kirkcaldy are easily accessible by bus and train.

Daniella Karaoglan Christensen
“We’re only two minutes away from the vibrant city centre. The fact that we don’t have a campus spread out across the city means that you will get to know students from all disciplines. This is just one of the reasons why Dundee is where you will find your second family – because you can find the right fit for you”

Daniella Karaoglan Christensen Final year BSc International Business student

Top-class facilities

The library is a vital part of any university campus, and ours is no exception. Dundee’s main library has long opening hours (open until 2:30am in semester time and 24 hours a day during exams) and a cafe to keep you going through those study sessions. Recently refurbished and upgraded, it offers everything you want from a library, plus relaxation areas and group study rooms with the latest technology.

Dundee University Students’ Association

Dundee University Students’ Association, known on campus as DUSA, is your union at the University of Dundee. Their mission is to promote and represent the interests of their members – the students.

The DUSA building is a hub for all enquiries about student representation, housing, societies, student media, charities, fundraising and anything else to do with your student experience. If you want to chat about it, they want to hear from you.

Like all good students’ unions, there’s more to DUSA than just support. You’ll also find a great night out on DUSA’s five floors, three eateries, comfortable study escapes and beautiful views across the River Tay.

Our Virtual Tour gives you a detailed view of the campus and many of our fantastic locations, buildings, and facilities.
