The University of the Highlands and Islands facilities guide is drawn from our insitution-wide PURE database. It is updated on a daily basis by our researchers and institutions so is a completely current record of our research capability. It is useful to a wide range of visitors looking for information on particular researchers, research subjects, publications, conferences, activity, impacts, laboritories or particular scientific equipment.

Over time this resource will give information on all facilities and equipment available across the UHI campuses, we are working to add as much of this information as possible throughout 2013.

Our Research database gives the ability to search for facilities/equipment - please use the link below:
