Gilmorehill campus

Our main Gilmorehill campus is based in the West End of the city, within easy reach of the city centre by public transport or on foot. It’s a compact, campus-style environment with all the benefits of being in a major city.

Gilmorehill is home to the majority of our teaching and research facilities and is expanding as part of our £1 billion campus development programme to include a mix of research, teaching and public spaces.

At the centre of the campus lies the stunning Gilbert Scott building, with an iconic bell tower that is one of Glasgow’s most notable landmarks. On this campus we have great indoor sports facilities including a 25m swimming pool, two student unions, our museum and art gallery and an enormous library over 12 floors.

And as we’re right in the heart of the West End, the campus is surrounded by shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a cinema.

Revolutionising your teaching and learning

We’re creating a campus to inspire the next generation of world changers. Our flagship James McCune Smith Learning Hub is the first building to be delivered through our campus development programme. The £90m building includes flexible learning spaces and technology-enabled teaching resources. As well as increasing our teaching capacity, this modern study space offers flexible spaces for clubs and societies, conferences and events, and is the student-focused heart of the campus.
