The site will see the addition of public space, including three outdoor courts, and improved accessibility for users. Several academically historic buildings will be retained and modernised as part of the development.
The development will provide a cohesive sense of place encompassing high-quality public space, increased accessibility, centrally-located student accommodation and vibrant restaurant, café and retail facilities.
Development will entail a series of new-build projects; opportunities to optimise existing spaces and the creative re-use of heritage buildings such as the Stirling building.
The site will create a brand new district and sustainable extension to the city, centred around a mixed academic and urban community, and offering a high quality of life to enhance both the city and the University.
The site is being upgraded as a well-connected research and development environment providing world-class facilities that help the University remain globally competitive.
The Campus will be transformed into an urban healthcare village, enhancing existing on-site activities, adding a 121-acre country park and creating space for commercial organisations.
