All our campuses have accessible (gender-neutral) toilets available, as well as a 'quiet room' with useful information, leaflets and time out activities for students who need a quiet space.
The Arcade underwent a total refit in 2019. The space was transformed into a collaborative working space with social areas, booths with screens and charging stations, and everyone’s favourite feature, the living wall.
The new arcade also includes a café serving hot drinks, hot rolls, sandwiches and delicious soups.
Due to its close proximity and links with Edinburgh University, all of the campuses sports facilities are run by the Edinburgh University Students' Union (EUSA). SRUC Edinburgh students are able to become EUSA members through a registration process at the start of each academic year.
