SRUC Ayr Campus,
Welcome to Riverside, Ayr
Ayr campus is located on a state-of-the-art campus on the riverside, right in Ayr town centre. The campus is shared with the University of the West of Scotland and has excellent road and rail links, with easy access to nearby airports and ferry terminals.
Living in Ayr
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.
