    Facilities

    Much as the hospitality industry relies on both historic attractions and 21st century luxuries, our stunning Craiglockhart Campus combines the ancient and modern beautifully. Almost a tourist destination in its own right the campus sits at the bottom of a craggy hill and offers fantastic facilities like a 400-seat lecture theatre and language and multimedia labs. It’s also home to our Innovation and Enterprise Centre and a real airline simulator. We’re currently using these facilities for research in the tourism sector that is already internationally recognised.
