The University of Stirling has always offered an outstanding student experience, and our existing facilities were awarded five stars in the 2018 QS World University Rankings. But we’re also building for the future – which is why work is already underway on two major renovation projects that will see a combined £41.7 million invested in our central campus hub and sports facilities between now and academic year 2020/2021.

Campus Central

Our existing campus atrium is being transformed into a modern three-storey hub encompassing new social and learning spaces. The £21.7 million project will create 3,000m2 of additional floor space and maximise the impact of the University’s natural surroundings.

Sports facilities

We’re building an iconic new sports complex to underscore our status as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence. The overhaul will see £20 million invested in a three-court sports hall, indoor cycling studio, enhanced changing facilities and much more.

  • Changes to access
    • New University bus hub opened at rear of Logie Lecture Theatre. Buses no longer call at Queen’s Court, leaving two arrival and departure points on campus: a bus stop at the main entrance to campus – providing access to the Pathfoot Building – and at the bus hub.
    • Access to Queen’s Court and the West Link Road has been removed for all vehicles. A limited number of blue badge parking will remain outside the Macrobert Arts Centre until the end of the year. Disabled drop-off access to the Macrobert Arts Centre and Atrium will also remain until the end of the year. However, access to the drop-off location (immediately outside the Atrium) is now via the East Link Road, and not from the current West Link Road. 
    • The one-way system around the swimming pool building has been closed. The remaining car parking spaces can be accessed via a turning point and layby situated at the existing road entrance.
  • Upcoming works

    Campus Central Phase 1 – Site set up will run from end of April through to end of May 2019.

    The works comprise:

    • Establishment of the contractor’s site accommodation
    • Provision of tree protection
    • Landscaping new disabled parking and drop off
    • Installation of the canopy at temporary Macrobert entrance (in use from end June 2019)

    Campus Central Phase 2 – New extension enabling works will run from early May through to June 2019.

     The works comprise:

    • Relocation of relevant services for the Atrium and Macrobert
    • Formation of temporary route (including high level walkway) between the temporary Macrobert entrance and the Atrium (in use from end June 2019)
    • Relocation of Macrobert ticket office
    • Commencement of solid hoarding around Queen’s Court site area

Courtyard development

As part of the ongoing development of campus, we received planning approval in March 2019 to create a new covered courtyard at the heart of the Cottrell Building. This area is intended to act as a focal point for the campus and a key social and learning space for students.
