Did you know?
- Garthdee Towers are located in a quiet location on campus with stunning views from the top floor communal lounges.
- With only 49 rooms available, these rooms are heavily in demand and unfortunately we are unable to offer them to everyone that requests them.
- The campus is located in a quiet residential area and there are no facilities out of hours so if you want easy access to social activities this may not be the best site for you.
- The quirky design of the Round Tower means the rooms have built in beds to accommodate the round walls – not ideal for taller people!
