The University of Glasgow unveils new teaching & learning hub
April 30 2021
The University of Glasgow has opened the doors to the latest addition to its Gilmorehill campus, the James McCune Smith Learning Hub.
The £90m teaching and learning facility has been designed by HLM for use by over 2,500 students and includes individual study spaces for students unable to study from home.
Project architect Andy Nicoll said: “Located at the heart of the campus, the new James McCune Smith Learning Hub has been designed to deliver an exceptional student experience within a dynamic learning environment.
“With a variety of interactive teaching and active learning spaces, it will support a motivated, vibrant, and diverse community of learners and academics to evolve efficient and effective learning methodologies through both group and individual study.”
Named after the prominent civil rights activist and first African American to receive a medical degree, awarded by the University of Glasgow in 1837, the facility opened for the first time this week.
The facility will improve equality in leaning by accommodating students who do not have facilities to study from home
