Welcome to Campus Central

Campus Central is the heart of the University of Stirling.

Opened in late 2021, Campus Central is the result of a major £23 million infrastructure investment and features vibrant digitally-connected spaces for socialising and study, as well as shops, cafés and our new Student Services Hub.

The atrium

The atrium is the centre of life on campus, where you will find a wide range of study and collaboration spaces, cafés and a shop. The atrium is the ideal place to meet up with friends for a coffee, grab lunch, work through that group project together, or find the space for some quiet study time.
