Look inside Strathclyde University's new £60m learning and teaching hub

Strathclyde University has revealed plans for a new £60 million learning and teaching hub at the heart of campus.

The flagship facility is being designed by students and staff to develop leading-edge teaching facilities, as well as providing a new home for student support services and the Students’ Union.

Bringing together the former Architecture and Colville buildings, it is designed to place student-facing services at the centre of the campus and "give access to new ways of teaching."

Take a look at a fly-through video of the Learning & Teaching building.

The hub is the University's biggest single investment in a campus project to date – and is expected to be finished this year.

Calvin Hepburn, former Students' Asssociation President said: "With its location at the heart of the campus and having been designed with students, for students, this building will most certainly have an impact."

Strathclyde University, who forecast an estimated 30 per cent growth in overseas students over the next five years, said the new development will "also meet the needs of our student population growing in size and diversity."

It follows the news medical technology firm Enmovi has been given a multimillion-pound grant to carry out cutting-edge research at a new £8million research and development (R&D) base on the campus.

Projects include wearable sensors, data analytics and mobile apps designed to help improve patient recovery.
