The Town and Campus
SRUC Oatridge Campus is located on a 283-hectare estate, within easy reach of motorways, and less than an hours' drive from most of Scotland's major towns and cities. The grounds around the campus are used for both teaching and socialising as there are attractive gardens around the main buildings.
To provide even more learning facilities we have a farm with units for beef cattle, sheep and pigs and 100 hectares under cereal production and many hectares of grassland. Based on the farm is an animal care unit with all kinds of animals from reptiles and snakes to alpacas!
The campus provides facilities for a wide range of sports and a very active Student Association makes sure of a vibrant social life. The setting may be one of rural tranquillity to the casual visitor, but appearances can be deceptive!
The campus is close to extensive leisure facilities, including swimming pools, ice rinks and ski slopes and minibus transport is laid on to take groups on organised outings. Edinburgh, with a wealth of social and cultural attractions, is only 30 minutes away.
