Student Notice - Return of College Equipment
With the academic year ending, we want to remind students to return all college equipment borrowed.
Our college is spread across two campuses - 75 miles apart - allowing us to meet the needs from across the length and breadth of the region.
Found within the unique multi-institution Crichton Campus, our Dumfries Campus opened in 2008 with the needs of modern learners in mind. It shares the site with the University of the West of Scotland, the University of Glasgow, the Open University and Scotland’s Rural College. It also contains Scotland's first fully integrated FE/HE library and resource centre.
Our Stranraer Campus is the smaller of the two but continues to grow its student numbers and meet the needs of learners in the South West of Scotland.
