Facilities at Scottish Borders Campus
The Scottish Borders Campus is well equipped with a range of facilities on hand.
The on-campus library is open for 66 hours each week during semester, giving you plenty of time to find and use the books, journals and other material.
With 94 individual and group study places, there is plenty of space for you to study, whether on your own or in groups.
There is wireless access throughout, and networked PCs and printers allow you to access University-licensed software, online databases and journals, as well as other internet resources.
The campus is well endowed with general and specialist computing facilities. The campus network is mainly based on Windows PCs, but there are iMacs located in the campus library and a dedicated iMac Lab in the High Mill Building. The latest generation of multi function devices provide printing, copying and scanning facilities throughout the campus buildings. Wireless is available throughout the campus, and a separate network provides wired and wireless internet access in the Jean Muir Student Village.
There is a full catering service in The Union, which offers healthy salads, filled sandwiches, panini, toasties, hearty soups and a range of hot, nourishing main meals. And there's the cafeteria: a bright and airy space that's ideal for catching up with friends over a coffee in between lectures.
There is a recommended day nursery near the campus that can cater for children from three months and also offers out-of-school care for older children.
Archives & museum
The University Heritage and Information Governance service houses a rich and inspiring collection of fabrics, documents and costume from around the world, ranging from exquisite embroidery to lush paisley shawls. The collection reflects the Scottish Borders’ position as one of the centres of the global textiles industry from the 18th century to the present day.
Staff have made the archives as accessible as possible and are happy to help you understand how you can use archives for learning and research.
