About City Campus

Overview

Our Aberdeen City Campus is situated in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and cafés.

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.

In recent years the campus benefited from 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.


Facilities

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.

“I am dyslexic and suffer with my mental health so it was great to be assigned the same support tutor for three years. She was always available to talk to if I found myself in crises and I felt really well supported.”

“My lecturers were just fantastic, I cannot thank them enough for what they’ve taught me but also for how supported they made me feel. Their belief and encouragement of me as a singer songwriter has been invaluable and truly helped build my confidence to bring me to where I am today.”
