The relaxed, friendly atmosphere of the UWS Dumfries Campus extends into Dumfries itself. It is a safe town which is well served by public transport with easy access to the campus by foot, car or bus from the town centre.
With a population of 38,000, Dumfries provides all the amenities of a city, but on a smaller scale. Restaurants, pubs and clubs are plentiful, entertainment options include sports and health clubs and cinemas, as well as high street and independent shops. The cost of living is also relatively low - a night out in Dumfries will cost you considerably less than a night out in the city and the search for accommodation in town, if you need it, will present very few problems.
