Great facilities, innovative designs - Abertay is an unrivalled student experience!
The facilities at Abertay are excellent and getting better. Our award-winning Library has set the standard for all British universities. This superb learning environment includes fully equipped seminar rooms for teaching information and IT skills, six group study rooms, and the Centre for Language Learning and Self Study. Part of the building has been designed to operate 24 hours a day and combines IT and study facilities and a time-out area where students can relax.
Abertay's Student Centre is slap bang in the middle 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 and meet with lecturers.
Sport@Abertay is as much a part of University life as attending lecture and tutorials. We have over 20 sports clubs ranging from traditional sports such as rugby and football through to new exciting sports such as Skydiving and Ultimate Frisbee. Most clubs compete in the Scottish Universities Sport Leagues whilst some also compete in local amateur leagues.
Abertay Sports Injuries Centre
The Sports Injury Clinic is a multi-disciplinary centre that brings together expertise from the areas of sports medicine and sports science and delivers them to the individual. The Centre provides a comprehensive service to everyone and is delivered by our staff who are highly-qualified in a range of areas including the diagnosis of injuries, rehabilitation advice, screening and advice on appropriate training methods. They are also qualified in massage and acupuncture.
JS Campus Bookstore
The Abertay student bookstore sells a wide range of books for all courses that the University of Abertay offers as well as popular non-fiction and fiction books. Plus a great range of discount priced CD’s, DVD’s, cards, and a small shop that sells the essential student needs. A 10% discount card is offered to all University staff while students receive special offers at the start of term. With friendly staff to help you out, a coffee shop in the foyer area and the main lecture theatre across the road - all needs are covered.
The Hannah Maclure Centre
The Hannah Maclure Centre is located on the top floor of the new Abertay Student Centre in the heart of campus and provides an informal and cultural space for students and staff to present, engage and interact with exhibitions. The Centre also houses a state-of-the-art cinema and performance space that seats 80 and runs student film nights and a multitude of one off screenings, performances and seminars.
There are many things to do at Abertay when you are not studying. The Student's Union organises a wide range of societies covering all sorts of interests from the Biotechnology Society, Japanese Film and Anime Society or the Poker Society. All of the societies welcome new members so you don't need to be an expert to join.
Muslim Prayer Rooms
The Muslim Prayer Rooms, maintained by the Abertay Islamic Society, are situated on Level 5, Old College. Access is from the stair beside Room 3034 on the Level 3 corridor (up two flights) to Room 5015 for Brothers and 5004 for Sisters.
The Piping and Traditional Music Club
The Abertay University Piping and Traditional Music Club was formed in 2001 and aims to promote piping, drumming and traditional music within the University and in the wider community. Membership is free and is open to both students and staff. The Club runs a variety of activities and groups including the Abertay University Pipe Band, which also welcomes members from the wider community, and a traditional acoustic music session group. In addition, free tuition is offered for students and staff in piping, drumming, fiddle and guitar, all from beginner level.
Abertay is one of the leading universities in the use of communications and information technologies (C&IT) in the support of teaching and learning and access to electronic and other information resources is central to every course at the University. Our Information Services combine the information provision skills of library staff with the technical expertise of our computing team, together with the creative design and multimedia expertise of publishing staff. Students therefore benefit from the provision of a high quality integrated support service across the University
