UofG to construct new Postgraduate Teaching Hub and Business School building
Issued: Wed, 19 Feb 2020 14:34:00 GMT
The University has approved plans for a major new development which will create a unique new hub for its Postgraduate Taught (PGT) student community and house the Adam Smith Business School.
The new £86 million building will include modern and collaborative learning and teaching facilities for PGT students. It will also allow the Adam Smith Business School to continue to grow and deliver world class learning, teaching and research, and an enhanced student experience.
This is the fourth major new building to be delivered through the University’s £1 billion Campus Development Programme, which is redeveloping the site of the former Western Infirmary in Glasgow’s West End. Construction will begin in July and is expected to complete in 2022.
The new building will be located on the southern boundary of the site, on Dumbarton Road, adjacent to Kelvingrove Museum and Kelvin Hall. The surrounding area will be extensively landscaped to create a welcoming and accessible gateway onto the expanded campus.
