Robert Gordon University is located in Aberdeen, in the North East of Scotland. Aberdeen is known as the Energy Capital of Europe and is one of the most economically robust cities in Europe. Aberdeen is regularly cited as being an economic powerhouse in the UK economy but at the same time it wins awards for proving the best quality of life, and being the safest city, in the UK.
RGU is located on the impressive Garthdee campus on the edge of Aberdeen city. Over £170 million has been invested in campus facilities in recent times as RGU believes that students need to graduate with experience of industry standard resources such as labs, software, equipment, facilities and techniques, if they are to get their career in their chosen field underway as quickly as possible.
In September 2013, as part of an impressive campus development strategy, the new School of Engineering; Computing Science and Digital Media; and Pharmacy and Life Sciences opened, giving RGU students access to some of the most advanced education facilities available at any university in the UK. A brand new state of the art library was also included as part of this campus development, which benefits the entire Robert Gordon student population.
Robert Gordon University is located on the beautiful riverside campus of Garthdee, situated on the outskirts of Aberdeen city. Covering over five miles of green space, Garthdee has been named as one of the nicest learning environments in Europe.
Although the Garthdee campus has a feeling of serenity and tranquility, it is only a short bus journey (15 minutes) into Aberdeen city, with the campus being included as part of a bus route meaning there are several buses every hour to shuttle students between the campus and the city.
The University provides a range of accommodation to suit different needs and budgets. Spread across the city of Aberdeen, the university is committed to providing safe, secure and affordable accommodation for the students. All accommodation is in the style of private bedrooms in shared, self-catering apartments, or flats as they are called in Scotland.
There is more to University life than studying, so those flats cater for more than students' academic needs. Each study bedroom is equipped to provide a private place to relax or revise with the option of an ensuite bathroom if desired; and each flat contains a communal living area and kitchen where flatmates and friends can socialise.
