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. 

SRUC Barony also offers conference venues.

Sports facilities

With its superb changing facilities, the Barony sports hall is suitable for badminton (4 courts), indoor tennis, carpet bowls, basketball, volleyball, indoor football and table tennis. Your supporters can watch you compete from the comfort of the Kirkmichael bar which overlooks the sports hall.

The sports hall annexe offers the most popular forms of exercise. This includes a treadmill, cycling machine and multi-gym. Ideal for an aerobic work out or other fitness training.

If you are a naturalist, bird watching from a custom built hide overlooking the pond or along the Ae valley may appeal. A visit to 'big wood' provides the best opportunity to see red squirrels, a common sight on the Barony estate.
