Living and studying at Stirling

You'll be inspired

‌The University of Stirling was founded on the site of the historic Airthrey Estate in 1967. Nestling beneath the Ochil Hills, our campus covers 330 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.


It's all on your doorstep

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.


Everything's laid on

‌As well as the academic facilities you'd expect, the campus also boasts:

  • a cinema and theatre, in the MacRobert arts centre
  • bars and a nightclub, in the Robbins centre
  • a shopping precinct with bank, travel agent, pharmacy, bookshop, newsagent and supermarket
  • extensive indoor and outdoor sports facilities, including a nine-hole golf course and 50-metre swimming pool


It's safe

The police have repeatedly described our campus as one of the safest in Britain.
