Plan your journey
On arrival at our Scottish Borders Campus you will be greeted by Heriot-Watt University staff and students. Please make your way to the Main Entrance reception where you can collect your Open Day bag with an event programme for the day.
Since there is so much to see and do, a comfortable pair of shoes would be useful so you can explore our campus fully!
Please be aware that there will be a rail replacement service in place on Saturday 7th October between Edinburgh Waverley and Gorebridge.
Travelling by car?
Open day visitors can use the main car park directly in front of the main campus building. The satellite navigation postcode is TD1 3HF.

The Borders Railway links the School of Textiles and Design to Edinburgh City Centre. If you are travelling from Edinburgh, you should get on the train at Waverley Station and get off the train at Galashiels Station. For timetables and prices, visit www.scotrail.co.uk.
