  • University of the West of Scotland's Largest Campus

    Paisley Campus is the largest of the four UWS campuses. Located in the centre of Scotland’s largest town – Paisley – a few minutes’ walk from Paisley Gilmour Street train station, with frequent services to nearby Glasgow and Ayrshire, the campus is lively and urban.

    The campus occupies over 20 acres and is home to teaching, lecture rooms, workshops and laboratories, as well as a library, Students’ Union and some student accommodation.

    It is a dynamic and contemporary environment, with around 10,000 students offering a range of courses and research opportunities in business, computing, social sciences, engineering and science, and health, nursing and midwifery.

    Our £13.2 million Paisley Campus student residence opened in September 2012, offering stunning new accommodation on campus. 336 en-suite rooms, including 13 accessible rooms are available.
