  • Lanarkshire campus update

    Hamilton is set to remain a university town after University of the West of Scotland announced plans to move into Hamilton International Technology Park (HITP).

    Following extensive consultation with the local authority, stakeholders, students and staff, the Court has now moved that a full business case be brought forward to transform HITP into a state of the art, modern campus.

    Ian Welsh OBE, Chair of UWS Court, said: “Following a lengthy discussion, the Court felt the opportunity to develop what would be the UK’s most environmentally friendly, dynamic and vibrant new campus was one that could not be missed.

    “We held detailed discussions with the developers and other stakeholders, who presented a very compelling and convincing business and educational case for HITP, including an exciting and innovative legacy plan for the current campus location which will add even more value to the town centre."

    Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, Professor Craig Mahoney said: “This will be a game-changer for higher education in Scotland and will create the country’s most, dynamic and exciting learning environment, allowing us to grow the educational opportunities for students internationally, across the UK, Lanarkshire and the wider central belt."
