Student life and campus facilities

When you arrive for the start of the new semester, you’ll receive the same warm welcome that all Stirling students enjoy. You’ll still have access to our beautiful 330-acre campus and sport, study and social facilities – but the latest government guidelines mean there will be some changes for the time being.

Campus buildings, catering and study spaces

Our recently refurbished atrium is at the heart of life on campus, and is an essential hub for student life. We are planning for all catering facilities and study spaces in the atrium and around campus to be open from the start of semester. Relevant social distancing measures will be applied across campus, and pedestrian traffic systems will be implemented in buildings, where appropriate.

Library, computer labs and study spaces

The library will be open – and we're taking steps to make it safer. We're also investing even more in e-books, digital textbooks and journals to make sure you have access to everything you need to support your studies, wherever you are.

Sports facilities

Social distancing measures will help you stay safe while you work out. Our facilities will be open to students and staff, with outdoor pitches and indoor classes available. Some popular exercise classes will take place in large spaces.
