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 development work is expected to begin in early 2019 and be completed around September 2020. It will see the refurbishment of the existing Atrium, creation of a new three-storey building, and a traffic-free Queen’s Court.
To allow this work, transport changes will take place over the summer and be completed by the end of September 2018.
To improve the University’s facilities, a pedestrian zone will be created in the Queen’s Court area. This means there will be some essential changes to how traffic flows on campus.
The University is committed to providing a fully accessible campus for all our staff, students and visitors. Plans for the new transport hub, including access to and from all the bus stops, have been considered with accessibility in mind and comply with the Equality Act 2010.
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.
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 will be created by the end of September 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.
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.
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.
Existing bus services will continue to operate on current routes through Queens Court, until completion of the new transport hub in September 2018.
Buses will be re-routed to the new and improved transport hub on its completion in September 2018. This will provide 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 will be located at:
There will be two departure bus stops, which will be positioned within the transport hub and at the Pathfoot bus stop.
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.
The works on these transportation changes will begin in mid-May 2018 and are expected to be completed by the end of September 2018. The development work is expected to begin in early 2019 and be completed around September 2020.
