University Of Aberdeen Location

The original buildings of both colleges which united to form the University are much admired architectural features of Aberdeen. The main campus is now at King’s College, where the original buildings are still in use in addition to many newer buildings of largely modernist style. A second campus at Foresterhill houses the School of Medicine and Dentistry. In addition, there are smaller facilities at other sites such as the Royal Cornhill Hospital to the west of the city centre, and the Rowett Institute in Bucksburn.

King’s College

The King’s College campus covers an area of some 35 hectares around the ancient King’s College buildings and the High Street. It hosts around two-thirds of the university’s built estate and most student facilities, and lies 2 miles north of Aberdeen city centre. The university does not own all the buildings on the “campus” which also include private houses, shops and businesses (although many of these rely heavily on custom from the university community) and it is best thought of as a district of the city dominated by the university. It can be reached from the city centre by bus routes 1, 2, 13, 19 and 20 operated by First Aberdeen and from northern Aberdeenshire or the bus station at Union Square by various routes operated by Stagecoach Bluebird.
