Our campuses

The City Campus is the main campus of University of Dundee,virtually traffic-free, with attractive landscaped spaces. Although surprisingly compact, it's full of top class facilities and a lively social scene. Most students are on or near the campus 24/7 and it's easy to make new friends here. It's like a campus university without being miles away from the nearest town. The attractions of the city centre and the cultural quarter - with cafes, restaurants, gift shops and galleries - are just a stroll away See below for a list of amenities near our campus.

Three miles west of the main City Campus is the Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, home to the College of Medicine, Dentistry & Nursing.

The School of Medicine's origins began in 1897 when the Dundee Royal Infirmary was recognised by St Andrews as a teaching hospital. The conjoined Medical School (Dundee and St Andrews) was founded in 1898, and the School of Medicine building was opened on the main campus in 1904. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.

Kirkcaldy campus borders the town of Kirkcaldy in Fife. 35 miles from Dundee, this campus is one of the three locations for the School of Nursing and Midwifery.

The buildings here were originally constructed by the Fife Health Board to house the Fife College of Nursing and Midwifery, but in 1996 the University of Dundee took over the education of nurses and midwives. See below for a list of amenities near our campus.
