  • Lanarkshire Campus update

    University of the West of Scotland has confirmed its intention to move into Hamilton International Technology Park (HITP) and create a state-of-the-art, modern university campus. The decision taken by the UWS Court, at its meeting on 27 June, to approve the full business case for the new site takes the University a step closer to moving into HITP.
    The new campus, is just over two miles from the existing site on Almada Street, Hamilton and will offer state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, student accommodation, Students’ Union, and specialist laboratory space.

    Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UWS, said: “Today’s decision is a major milestone in the development of an exciting new University campus for UWS, for Scotland and for Lanarkshire. We will now move forward with creating one of the UK’s most environmentally friendly, dynamic and vibrant campuses. This will be game-changing for higher education in Scotland and provide us with a fantastic opportunity to develop our educational offering for students internationally, across the UK, Lanarkshire and the wider Central Belt.”
