200 x 45

Abertay's Student Centre is in the heart of our friendly city campus, just yards from our award-winning library and main teaching buildings. We've invested £6 million into getting it just right, from the beautiful red sandstone to the inspiring green cladding with glass front.

The Student Centre is more than just a building - it’s the cultural and social hub of our city campus and is a safe, stimulating environment in which to eat, relax and socialise with friends. In keeping with our library, it really stands out as a place of beauty and interest.  Combine this will free Eduroam and Cloud wi-fi, along with a fantastic selection of food, drink and entertainment, what could be better?

The building has an open, welcoming and comfortable foyer space with a central reception point and great seating which overlooks the library and pedestrianised area. It has a relaxed atmosphere where students can have a quiet break between classes, a chance to sit down, have a coffee and review notes with classmates. A small shop sells sandwiches, snacks, tea, coffee and stationery items. A real grab and go atmosphere about it.
