Campus Vision

Campus Vision

In 1870 the University of Glasgow relocated from the High Street to Gilmorehill in the west end of the city. The facilities that were built at that time: including the Gilbert Scott building and the iconic tower have provided a legacy that we enjoy to this day.

Now, thanks to our purchase of around 15 acres of land on what is currently the Western Infirmary site, the University has a unique opportunity to re-shape the campus and provide modern, fit for purpose facilities that are in keeping with Glasgow’s status as a world leading research-intensive university and our aims of Glasgow 2020: A Global Vision.
 
As ever, the student experience will be at the heart of all that we do, and the redevelopment will allow us to focus on what our students want and need, as well as providing an environment that is open and accessible to the wider community. We are also committed to creating a sustainable estate with demanding carbon footprint reduction targets.
