Dumfries Campus

Dumfries campus

The University of Glasgow at Dumfries is a rural campus in south-west Scotland with a close-knit community of students from the UK and around the world.

A welcoming learning environment

Friendly residences and small class sizes will help you to get to know students and staff from all disciplines. You will be taught by academics who are among the top researchers in their fields, and who have a progressive vision for interdisciplinary teaching and research. 

An idyllic location

The Dumfries campus is set in 85 acres of leafy parkland with stunning views to the Solway estuary and hills, proximity to hiking and cycling trails, rivers and lochs, and a walk or short bus ride to the historic town centre. With excellent transport links, the rest of the UK is within easy reach; Glasgow and Edinburgh are just under two hours away, while Carlisle is under an hour.

A network of partners

We’re proud to be a partnership campus, sharing our Library and IT facilities with the University of the West of Scotland and Dumfries & Galloway College.
