Building our future

Building our future

We are creating a campus to inspire the next generation of world changers.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Over the next ten years, a major programme of investment heralds one of the most significant expansions and developments of a UK university city campus for over a century. 

We are increasing our footprint on the city by 25%. An area covering 14 acres of land next to our Gilmorehill campus is in our possession and planning is underway to create a campus for the 21st century. 

We are entering a momentous chapter in our history, one that will transform our teaching, learning and research spaces.

We will bring together the best minds of today and tomorrow within world-class facilities – large interdisciplinary research spaces that offer flexibility and stimulate collaboration, and modern study spaces that will combine study and social learning space with multi-styled teaching and smart campus technologies. 

The first major project of the development is due to open in late 2019. The James McCune Smith Learning Hub will revolutionise how the University delivers learning and teaching and will provide a world-class facility for generations of future students from around the world.

Our campus development is about more than just extra land and buildings. Thanks to our ambitious development, we will soon be able to attract even more world-class expertise to Glasgow, enable more groundbreaking discoveries and inspire the next generation of world changers and researchers.
