About City Campus
Our Aberdeen City Campus is situated in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. It also has excellent access to local and national transportation links such as rail and bus services. The building is modern and dynamic, with state-of-the-art learning facilities and a wide range of social areas available to all of our students. Recently the campus has undergone a change to its exterior, with a re-cladding project boosting the energy use efficiency of the campus – reducing carbon emissions, energy consumption and energy maintenance costs. The modern exterior now reflects the equally modern interior and state-of-the art facilities inside the building, offering a welcoming learning environment for all.
Aberdeen City Campus boasts a range of exciting learning and teaching facilities including a TV studio, training salons, training restaurant, computing labs, science labs, a basement studio theatre, art workrooms and more! You’ll also find no shortage of places to grab a coffee or something to eat, and can make the most of the comfortable, spacious social and study areas situated throughout.
