Kirkcoleg Myrcia (KCM) is the largest university in Myrcia. It is located in Dunwic.

Campus

The heart of KCM is in the centre of Dunwic in the mynsters of St Eagdyth and St Wulfgar. The city centre university is roughly divided into two by the Kirkcoleg Basin, to the east is the Oldcampus which includes three of the oldest colleges founded in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, to the west is the Núcampus originally laid out on old industrial land in the 1960s. Other university buildings are located across the city of Dunwic and around Ceasternisc Bernica.

Oldcampus

The Oldcampus is located in the centre of Dunwic, it is not the oldest part of KCM (that is St Wulfram Coleg) but it contains three of the four ancient colleges founded from 1675-1705. In addition to the colleges the Oldcampus also includes some departmental and administrative buildings varying in date from the 17th century to the 21st.

The Cámeracórt (OGFmapicon.png map) is located in the south-east corner of the Oldcampus. It includes the Colegcamera, an observatory built in 1700, the Theology department, the oldest department in the university and the Camerabóchús, which was the main library of KCM from 1702 until the Núbóchús was built in 1962. Cameracórt is the most iconic area of KCM and attracts thousands of tourists each year.

Núcampus

The Núcampus is located to the west of the original site of KCM on the other side of the Kirkcoleg Basin. Until its redevelopment the site was an industrial area used mostly for grain storage and bread baking. In the 1960 KCM presented a masterplan for a new campus to Dunwic Burhcounsil, the plan was accepted and work began in the spring of 1961. The new campus was opened by the monarch in September 1962. Many of the original 1960s buildings remain including the Brán Húset (OGFmapicon.png map) which is the tallest building on the campus. The majority of buildings in this area are used for administration and departmental work in the law and business faculties.

Núbóchús

The Núbóchús (New Library) (OGFmapicon.png map) replaces a Brutalist library which, itself, replaced the original Camerabóchús on the Oldcampus. It was opened in 2009 by Bygett Lisedohtor and has won a number of architectural awards for its light and airy design. The Núbóchús is the official library of KCM and it receives a copy of every work published in Myrcia, it also provides support and assistance to the dozens of other departmental and collegiate libraries which make up KCM.

Kirkcoleg Artsálor

It includes a collection of contemporary Myrcian and international art and sculpture and is famed for its modernist architecture. Following a refurbishment in 2012 the gallery now boasts a restaurant and a new space to allow it to display travelling exhibitions.

Súdcampus

The Súdcampus (OGFmapicon.png map) is located south of the Ringweg in Súdenwold, close to Ræburn and St Etheldreda Coleg. It was built on farmland in 2015-16 as part of an expansion of the physics department at KCM. The new facilities include labs, offices and teaching spaces. It is connected by a regular bus link with the central area of KCM.

Colleges

KCM is made up of a number of colleges, some historic and some modern. Every student is a member of a college, often living on college property or in college-managed housing nearby. Undergraduates receive small-scale teaching in their college and large-scale teaching in their department. The arrangements for graduate students vary from course-to-course.
