UWS Lanarkshire: A sustainable campus for sustainable minds
Summer 2018 saw University of the West of Scotland (UWS) open the doors of its new Lanarkshire campus - one of the UK’s most modern and inspiring learning environments. The culmination of a two-year project and £110M investment, it represents a step-change in the delivery of higher education and is truly fit for 21st century learning and teaching.
Sustainability is at the heart of UWS Lanarkshire. From its design, to its focus on health and wellbeing, appreciating that quality of learning is impacted by quality of the environment. It is powered on 100% renewable energy from a nearby windfarm and features rainwater harvesting technology, resulting in one of the greenest campuses in the UK.
The campus’ modern teaching spaces moved away from traditional lecture layouts, and the integration of innovative technologies has enabled UWS to stay at the forefront of developments in higher education pedagogy.
