  2. The campus

    Robert Gordon University's Garthdee campus is absolutely top-of-the-range thanks to its 'Masterplan' – a £120 million campus development project. The campus is set along the riverbank and is absolutely stunning. The new facilities have been a great addition to Aberdeen for the students as well as the local community and there are ambitious plans for future growth as well.

    The campus is now home to the very best facilities and as such, all teaching is now centred here. This is to allow mixing between disciplines, which RGU believes is important for a modern society. There’s a new library and plenty of spaces for students to study.  The new facilities complement the University’s older buildings in terms of their innovative design and style. You’ve got everything you could possibly need on your doorstep, from a medical centre right through to a nursery (although you can’t be bringing babies into our RGU accommodation!).

    If you’re looking to join a sporting team or simply get fit, RGU SPORT boasts the best amenities around. As well as a swimming pool, climbing wall and three (!) gyms there are a range of classes on offer for people of all fitness levels. Anyone’s welcome to come down and give it a go!

    In terms of social scenes the University caters for everyone and the Union deals with all aspects of student life. Whether you want to chill out, get specialist advice, join a society or even get involved with politics, this is where you need to go.

    University is all about new experiences and RGU can provide the best ones possible. Our Robert Gordon University accommodation is perfectly situated so that you can make the most of it and live your student life to the full.
