University of Dundee

The University Campus is a short walk from the City Centre and the Railway station, situated within the cultural quarter of the City, the University is ideally placed for conferences and events.  The campus comprises an attractive balance of late Victorian, Edwardian and post modern architecture offering contemporary, high quality conference accommodation.

The award winning Dalhousie Building is the northern gateway to the Campus and offers flexible, public spaces with an impressive array of lecture theatre and teaching spaces; the double height foyer and gallery provide bright contemporary space for hospitality, exhibitions and social events.

The Tower Building on Perth Road is the southern gateway and main entrance to the University.

  • "The conference was a wonderful opportunity for students to learn from, network with and above all be inspired by speakers of the highest calibre from all over the world.  This is by far the most efficient way of allowing this to happen - can you imagine how difficult it would be if students, early career researchers and so on had to travel to meet such people? It just couldn't be done."

    Professor Nikolai Zhelev

     

  • "Our conferences have always been held here because that's where the professionalism is - we are proud to describe Dundee as a global leader in the field of concrete technology and we are delighted to share our research with fellow researchers."
