The Campus Central project is one of the University’s biggest infrastructure investments since our foundation, designed with input from the Students’ Union, staff and local stakeholders. The £21 million project will create a new three-storey building at the heart of campus and give students, staff and visitors a host of new study and social spaces to take advantage of.

Building work on Campus Central is due to be complete in September 2020, along with a concurrent development project to build an iconic new sports centre at the University. 

What we're building

The £21 million Campus Central project will see the creation of:

Transforming the campus

Campus Central will significantly enhance the student experience at Stirling – delivering facilities that match our ambitions for the future and maximising the impact of our stunning surroundings. 

Construction impact and timeline

To improve the University’s facilities, a pedestrian zone will be created in the Queen’s Court area outside the existing atrium. This means there will be some essential changes to how traffic flows on campus. Buses will be re-routed to a new and improved transport hub with close access to the Logie entrance and Cottrell teaching space, Stirling Court Hotel and the University of Stirling INTO Building.

Below you'll find more information about how we're retaining maximum accessibility throughout the Campus Central building phase and building towards an even more accessible campus. 

  • Transport and traffic flow

    To facilitate long-term improvements to our facilities and to transform our student experience, the University will be making changes to the transport arrangements and the flow of traffic on campus.

    A new transport hub opened in October 2018. Traffic access will be removed from the Queen's Court area to facilitate works to the Andrew Miller Building and Atrium, commencing early 2019. A landscaped pedestrian zone in the Queen’s Court area will be created by September 2020.

  • Andrew Miller Building

    The Andrew Miller Building and Atrium will remain fully open and accessible throughout the development of the transport hub. On completion of the transport hub works, works to the Andrew Miller Building and Atrium will follow commencing in early 2019 with an expected completion date of September 2020.

  • Accessibility

    An early phase of the works to the Andrew Miller Building and Atrium will create additional disabled parking bays located close to the Macrobert Arts Centre. This will allow for safe and easy access to the Centre and the Andrew Miller Building.

  • Bus services

    Buses have been re-routed to the new and improved transport hub, completed in October 2018. This provides bus travellers with close access to the Logie Entrance to Cottrell teaching space, Stirling Court Hotel and the University of Stirling INTO Building.

    A new bus-only route will be created from the transport hub, through part of the current South Car Park, and out onto Hillfoots Road via the Innovation Park road.

    The new transport hub will have shelters and wifi provision. Three arrival bus stops are located at:

    • the main entrance to campus, providing access to the Pathfoot Building
    • adjacent the Gannochy Sports Centre
    • at the new transport hub, located close to the Logie Lecture Theatre

    There are two departure bus stops, which will be positioned within the transport hub and at the Pathfoot bus stop.

  • Car parking

    The transport hub changes will result in the re-positioning of some car parking; however, there will be no reduction in the overall number of campus car parking spaces available to drivers, as those being displaced will be reprovisioned in a new car parking area added to the South Car Park.

  • Timeline

    Works on these transportation changes began in mid-May 2018 and were completed by the end of September 2018. The development work is expected to begin in early 2019 and be completed around September 2020.
