Our Campus

Located in Dundee city centre and just a short walk from the bus and train stations, Abertay's buzzing campus offers students an exciting learning experience.

Abertay Campus

The University is conveniently located on a city centre campus, with all of its buildings just a stone's throw from each other. Shops, recreational facilities and the main bus and train stations are a short walk away.

The main buildings - Old College and the Kydd Building - are in the Bell Street complex, grouped around the University's award-winning Bernard King 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.

Visit our Dundee campus

We run campus tours every Wednesday (until Wednesday 30 November). They're ideal if you couldn't make it to an Open Day or if you'd prefer to visit the University in a smaller group.

Finding your Way Around

There are five levels within the main academic area of Abertay, consisting of four buildings: the Kydd building, the Baxter Building, the Graham Building and the Old College building. Level 5 is generally for Social Health Science students, level 4 generally for Computing (Kydd Building).

Here's how to find the Campus.

Room Numbers and Maps

Levels and room numbers

  • If a room number begins with 1, the room is on level 1. If a room number begins with 2, the room is on level 2 and so on.

  • If the second digit is 0 (for example 3022) the room will be situated within the Old College Building.
