The Crichton Campus

Located on the outskirts of Dumfries, South West Scotland, the diversity and innovative nature of the Campus makes it unique a centre of learning.

Dumfries and Galloway College, University of Glasgow, University of West of Scotland, Open University, Crichton Carbon Centre and Scotland's Rural College all have a presence on the Crichton Campus and offer a wide range of learning opportunities. The Crichton Foundation has its office in Browne House on the Campus.

The Crichton Estate

In addition to the educational resources, the site has a business park, the Easterbrook Hall a conference and events centre, the Holiday Inn and the Crichton Memorial Church which is a popular venue for graduations and weddings.

The attractive sandstone buildings and outstanding grounds are part of a proud heritage and represent a public asset to be enjoyed by the whole community while the universities, colleges and other private and public sector occupants of the site make a vital contribution to the economy of Dumfries town and the region.


Originally endowed by Elizabeth Crichton, the site was purchased by Dumfries & Galloway Council from the Health Board. Since 1996 it has been transformed into today’s University and College Campus fulfilling the wishes of the original legacy of Elizabeth Crichton.
