Moray Street


Based next to the town centre in Elgin, our Moray Street Campus is home to the majority of our students.

Having taken over the former Elgin Academy buildings, we opened in November 1971 as Elgin Technical College continuing the educational history of Elgin, which had a Grammar School from medieval times, was one of the first burghs in Scotland to provide an Academy in 1791.

In 1992, we opened The Beechtree Restaurant to provide students studying hospitality with hands on, practical experience in a real working environment. This was later joined in 2001 with the opening of our Student Services Centre and again in 2014 when Princess Anne, Chancellor of the University of the Highlands and Islands opened The Alexander Graham Bell Centre for Digital Health (AGBC), our research, education and business hub.

Our Moray Street Campus is also home to Moray School of Art, one of the five major art schools in Scotland.
