Student Life

Housing is a short walk from classrooms, the library, restaurants, shopping, and social areas. Fitness facilities include swim-ming pools, tennis courts, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Stirling is a smaller, historic city just an hour by bus or train from Edinburgh and Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland and with easy connections to other cities in Europe. In the heart of Scotland, Stirling is close to both highland and lowlands, which offer opportunities for hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, and sailing. Visitors to Sterling remark on the beauty of the castle and the friendli-ness of the people.
