The Town and Campus
The seaside town of Ayr is a busy and historic centre, offering good social and recreational facilities and attracting many visitors throughout the year. The Ayr Campus is centrally located adjacent to the Ayr River within a park-like setting just a short walk from the town centre and rail and bus connections.
Ayr itself is situated on the west coast of Scotland and the town looks across the Firth of Clyde towards the Isle of Arran and the atmospheric Mull of Kintyre. To the south of Ayr lies the unspoilt countryside of the Galloway Hills, while the buzz of Glasgow, to the north, is easily reached.
The campus is a purpose built facility shared with the University of West of Scotland (UWS). This means that there is a large and diverse student body where there are lots of activities and amenities, yet as a student of SRUC you remain part of a smaller more closely knit group for classes, study and a variety of social activities.
The campus is the ideal setting for a friendly and relaxed student lifestyle. The carefully planned and recently constructed halls of residence provide the comfort of modern student accommodation and are a focal point for meeting and socialising among students from both UWS and SRUC.
Ayr SRC President:
"We have hockey and rugby teams in the British Universities league and both are doing well. There have been successful nights in the college bar and we've raised money for charity. SRUC Ayr really is a fantastic place to study, and to have fun. It is true that college years can be amongst the best times you'll ever have."
