Student Life

  • Dundee is a fantastic city to live in: it has a high student population and is a friendly and cost-effective place to live. Set in beautiful countryside on the east coast of Scotland, it is a welcoming university city named by GQ Magazine in 2015 as Britain's 'coolest little city'.
  • Dundee is an inspiring place to be, combining a rich history with modern transformation. The recent opening of the V&A Dundee is further testament to this.

Nightlife and Culture

  • On campus, DUSA is home to cafés, social spaces, and popular student nights out. In the city there are many other cafés, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.
  • Dundee is a cultural hub where students can enjoy local theatre, cinema and exhibitions at venues including The Repertory Theatre and Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre (DCA). The V&A and The McManus Galleries showcase Scottish design, art, and history in two distinct, architecturally striking buildings.
  • The main indoor shopping centre, The Overgate, has a selection of well-known shops and restaurants; while the smaller streets host independent eateries and retailers.
  • Dundee has two football clubs, and there are many options for golfers, skiers and snowboarders, hill walkers, and more. The city is perfectly placed for exploring the rest of Scotland and pursuing outdoor activities.


  • There is no need for a car in Dundee as everything can be reached by foot, bike or public transport. The university's campus and accommodation are a 5-minute walk from the city centre.
  • Additionally, DUSA runs a free night bus for students within the city boundary, making sure everyone gets home safe after a late night in the library or the union.
  • The city is on the main East Coast train route, with direct services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, London and other cities across the UK. 90% of Scotland can be reached within 90 minutes.
