Student life and campus facilities

Whenever you arrive on campus, you’ll receive the same warm welcome that all Stirling students enjoy. You’ll 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 and our new Campus Central space is at the heart of life on campus, and is an essential hub for student life. The supermarket, pharmacy, Students Union shop and the eateries SUP and Scran are all open. Find out more and see the opening hours.

Relevant safety 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 is open – and we've taken 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.
