The university is investing GBP 1 billion into a new campus which will benefit students for years to come. Some features include a learning hub, and a research hub.
James McCune Smith Learning Hub
This will provide a dynamic creative space for students. There will be flexible study and social learning areas, where many styles of technology-led teaching can take place. Students will have round-the-clock access to this building.
This Hub will provide the university, for the first time, a space for nurturing interdisciplinary thematic research ‘at scale’ – crossing traditional boundaries and established ways of working. There will be an Innovation Accelerator area, where top-quality office and laboratory spaces can facilitate for entrepreneurs and corporate spin-offs. This will allow for partnerships between corporate research groups and wider university programmes.
