The University of Stirling was founded on the site of the historic Airthrey Estate in 1967. Nestling beneath the Ochil Hills, our campus covers 310 acres and has a beautiful loch and 18th-century Airthrey Castle at its heart. The views are breathtaking and the buildings are designed to harmonise with their surroundings.
All the facilities are a short walk from each other. In particular, a central social area links the library, eating facilities, shops, the Students' Union and arts centre (MacRobert). There are also 2,300 accommodation spaces on campus, all just an early-morning stroll away from the lecture theatres, labs and library.
As well as the academic facilities you'd expect, the campus also boasts:
The police have repeatedly described our campus as one of the safest in Britain.
