Campus Development

Project Image

The University of Glasgow has been at the forefront of change, excellence, and innovation for over 550 years. Helping shape the City of Glasgow, with the help of supporters, for centuries.

Our development has now reached a critical stage. The University needs to adapt and expand to ensure that Glasgow remains a global leader in learning and research.

With your help we will deliver a £1B programme of investment, changing the landscape of both the University and the West End. Creating a campus worthy of Glasgow, attracting world-class expertise and enabling ground-breaking discoveries. Providing the best opportunities to the next generation of students.

With your support we plan on creating a smart and inclusive campus. One that utilises the latest technologies and invites the community onto campus. Our plan is to remove old boundaries and establish civic spaces. Creating welcoming entrances and gateways, so the community feels welcome on campus. With open walkways, glass fronts and inviting displays the community can feel welcome on campus and be part of our community.                                 

Thanks to your generosity the James McCune Smith Learning Hub is nearly complete and due to open in 2021. This building will nurture talent and provide the best environment for our students to thrive in. A real flagship in our development it will:

  • Create inspirational and diverse learning spaces
  • Combine flexible study and social learning with multi-styled and technology-enabled teaching.
  • Allow for extended access so that students can study around their circumstances
  • Provide the students with a new heart of campus.                                                                        

The Research Hub and the Clarice Pears Institute of Health & Wellbeing are well underway for delivery in 2022.

The Research Hub will bring together the right people in order to help tackle today’s global challenges. It will engage and connect the University with industry, the City of Glasgow and global research and policy communities to make a difference to people’s lives. Innovative minds need spaces in which to thrive and our Research Hub is all about creating a catalyst for change, excellence and innovation.

The Clarice Pears Institute for Health and Wellbeing will house a multidisciplinary centre for health, producing world-leading research on health policy, practice and behaviours that will improve global health and reduce inequalities. Director of the Institute of Heath and Welling says the following about the work facilitated here: “For the first time in decades we face the likelihood that children will live shorter lives than their parents due to the rise in obesity and type II diabetes. Health services cannot cope with the rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Prevention is the only option.”
