Phase 1A: 2017 - 2021
The £90.6 million James McCune Smith Learning Hub will provide a state of the art learning and the teaching facility with the capacity for over 2,500 students. To be completed in academic year 2019/20 it is the first building to be delivered through our campus development programme. To be completed: Academic year 2019/20
The £113 million Research Hub will be a vibrant, creative and collaborative heart for the Western campus. It will house around 600 academics, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students working across five specific themes. The ground floor will be accessible to the University and the wider community and will become a forum for knowledge exchange and public engagement.
The Clarice Pears Building will house the University's Institute of Health and Wellbeing. This will enable the relocation of staff from MRC / CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at Renfield Street and staff at Gartnavel General Hospital to the Gilmorehill Campus. Expected completion date: summer 2021
The iconic Joseph Black Building is undergoing a £34 million refurbishment to give the A-listed, art moderne building a new lease of life. The renovation will not only preserve its heritage by renewing the infrastructure and refurbishing the fabric of the building, it will also make it fit for the world class research and teaching which takes place there on a day to day basis.
Phase 1B: 2022 - 2026
