New College Lanarkshire is one of the largest campuses in Scotland which operates across Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire with campuses spanned across Cumbernauld, Motherwell, Coatbridge, Kirkintilloch, Hamilton and Broadwood. The College opened its doors in 2013 and today has over 10,000 students enrolled on full-time, part-time or evening courses.
Seeing the potential in the convenient location of the Ravenscraig site, the decision was made to build a new state-of-the-art campus on the grounds of the former steelworks. The £70m campus provides a learning environment of the highest quality for thousands of students, with the modern building stretching to 200,000 sq. ft. The five-storey main building is home to the majority of teaching and leisure spaces, and features a hair and beauty salon in addition to a training restaurant.
There is also a separate engineering building used by students undertaking courses in construction, joinery, welding, automotive and mechanical engineering – particularly fitting considering the history of the Ravenscraig site.
The campus at Motherwell has a modern Halls of Residence for students which include 44 single en-suite rooms offering a high standard of contemporary student living. For students with accessibility needs, there are two bedrooms and a kitchen which have been designed for wheelchair users on the ground floor.
