Our Campus

Abertay Campus

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.

There's always a busy atmosphere around the Abertay campus, as students come and go to lectures, meet with staff, study for exams, and attend tutorials and seminars.

Parking

Driving to the university, thought about car sharing and saving money?

Liftshare

Find car sharing partners and save money travelling to the university every day. Whether you work or live in Tayside and Central Scotland, you can find someone who shares your journey with the website Liftshare. It's easy and free to join and allows you the flexibility to drive into Dundee and the university campus. You can limit your search to find only people who are travelling to the university using Abertay University's Car Share Scheme.

Save costs on car parking

You can purchase a monthly pass for the West Bell St multi-storey car park (which is two minutes walking distance from the Abertay campus). The pass costs £64.50 per month, which works out really economical – around £2.70 a day. You can save money again if you car share with a few people.

It’s really simple to do – you make a single purchase before the first of each month. Anyone who wants to find out more about parking at the University can do so on the Estates portal page. To order a monthly ticket, visit the Abertay Online Shop.

Benefits of car sharing

• Save a considerable amount of money on city car parking
• Save money through reduced mileage and petrol costs
• Reduced congestion into/out of Dundee
• Reduced pollution around the city
• Alleviate parking problems driving to and out of Dundee
• Meet new people

Leisure Facilities

Sport at Abertay is as much a part of university life as attending lecture and tutorials. We have over 20 sports clubs ranging from traditional sports such as rugby and football through to new exciting sports such as skydiving and ultimate Frisbee. Most clubs compete in the Scottish universities sport leagues, while some also compete in local amateur leagues.

There's also a revitalised gym on campus, making it ideal to use in-between classes. For a minimal membership you have the use of 14 cardio vascular stations, 15 strength stations and as much training advice as you want.

For contact details for all the current sports clubs, contact the Sports Development Officer or the clubs directly.

The gym is located on the ground floor of the Graham Building and can be accessed through Old College, round the corner from the Copyshop, or from the bottom right corner of the rear car park
