Campus tours

We are offering the opportunity for prospective students, applicants and their families to visit the campus. Visits take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, subject to availability. The University follows guidance from the Scottish Government on COVID-19 mitigations and safety measures. Campus tour dates therefore may be subject to change, however we will endeavour to give as much notice as possible should a tour have to be cancelled.

Our socially distanced campus tours, led by trained Student Ambassadors, will last up to 90 minutes. The tours allow you to see our fantastic facilities and beautiful campus for yourself, giving you a sense of what it will be like to live and study at Stirling.
