Information about this scheme

City Campus is phase 2 in the realisation of a super-college which brought accommodation from 11 separate buildings onto 2 new Glasgow campuses - Riverside & City. At over 60,000m2, it has around 300 high‐tech classrooms as well as a multi‐purpose lecture theatre and specialist facilities including cross-discipline project bases that encourage blended learning. The accommodation includes: multi-disciplinary construction hall, modern computer suites, industry standard Hair and Beauty salons, Creative Industries, fully equipped Food & Hospitality facilities, Business School, Community Care & Social Science provision and internal sports facilities.  A full aircraft cabin facilitates cabin crew training. In addition to these the building incorporates a suite of media facilities including Scotland’s second largest TV broadcasting studio and industry standard radio production facilities. The building makes a significant civic contribution where the students and staff are energized and engaged, and is to be commended for resolving a social, cultural and urban brief in tandem with a unique educational program.
