The prestigious College of Arts building on the south of the site facing Kelvingrove Park will act as the University’s gateway to the West End’s Cultural Quarter, thus providing enhanced engagement with the wider Glasgow community.

The Story So Far

This new College of Arts facility will create an outward facing cultural centre that extends the global reach and reputation of the University, providing public access to the wealth of performance-based practices and resources, audio-visual practices and resources, creative writing, research outcomes and discoveries, lectures and other events addressing cultural matters, and policy analysis and debate that allows for greater integration, publicity and public understanding of the relevance of Arts and Humanities research.

It will act as a catalyst for enhanced interdisciplinary collaboration throughout the College and the adoption of world-leading best practice in learning, teaching, research, knowledge exchange and impact at institutional, national and international levels.

Fostering greater ambition and increased engagement with University strategic priorities, the new College facility will provide a world-class experience, thus encouraging staff, students and other stakeholders to achieve their full potential as world changers and enable the University to achieve its ambitious targets.
