The second phase will include a new Centre for Chronic Diseases and the creation of an Innovation Quarter. The extension to the university’s Gilmorehill campus will also create a central square linked to Byres Road and provide commercial opportunities in the form of restaurants, bars and a hotel.
About the Development
The University of Glasgow are expanding their campus beginning with the Learning & Teaching Hub on University Avenue and then developing the former Western Infirmary site. The development will create a vibrant learning and research campus that is woven into the urban fabric of Glasgow’s west end, building on the university’s legacy and positioning it as a ‘world-changer’ in international higher education.
Phase One A consists of the construction of a new Learning and Teaching Hub on University Avenue and the development of the former Western Infirmary site. This will create five new academic buildings with associated landscaping, infrastructure and roads.
