The University of Stirling’s campus is just two miles from the centre of Stirling in central Scotland. We're served by excellent fast public transport links from Glasgow and Edinburgh. We're easily accessible by bus, foot and bike from Stirling's centre.

The link will take you to the University of Stirling website and will show you a map of the area and give you the opportunity to search all available transport options.

We encourage everyone coming to the University to use the excellent public transport links to and from Stirling or Bridge of Allan.

Please note that at certain times demand for our car parking spaces may exceed supply.

Visitors to the University who choose to bring their car should note the following directions:

From the East, South or West take the M9 to Junction 11. At the junction, there is a roundabout which marks the end of the M9. From here you should take the exit for Bridge of Allan, follow the road through the town itself, and after about 200 metres you will find the University entrance on the left.

From the North take the A9 to the same roundabout and follow the same route through Bridge of Allan as above.
