The Garthdee campus, in a peaceful riverside setting, started life as home to Gray's School of Art and the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture & Built Environment. In 1998, its development began with the building of Aberdeen Business School (then known as the Faculty of Management), designed by renowned architect Norman Foster.

The campus continued to grow with the addition of the Faculty of Health & Social Care in 2002 (home to the Schools of Health Sciences, Nursing & Midwifery and Applied Social Studies) and the £11million sports centre, RGU SPORT, in 2005. Many of the University's administrative departments have been rehomed at Garthdee and other support facilities are also there, including a nursery and medical practice.

From September 2013, all teaching has been centred at Garthdee.

The University is committed to the development of the campus through its Masterplan, with ambitious plans for future growth.
