Based in beautiful Galashiels, our Scottish Borders Campus (SBC) is home to everything creative at Heriot-Watt. The campus is shared with Borders College, meaning there are over 1700 students studying in our modern facilities. With just around 600 Heriot-Watt students, we have a small and friendly community feel. The Edinburgh Campus is only an hour away by bus, and our shuttle bus runs twice daily between the campuses. See below for the bus timetable.

You can find the Student Union office in The Library (to the left as you walk in - look for our pretty pink banner!)

An inter-campus bus is available to students.

As the Shuttle Bus has a capacity of 16 seats, it is necessary to book your seat in advance of your journey.  To book a place you should email between 09.00 and 14.00 Monday to Friday. If the bus is fully booked you will be put on a reserve list and you may turn up at the departure point on the off chance that somebody does not turn up.
