A multi-million investment plan for the University of Aberdeen is set to expand and improve the facilities, particularly in the Science Teaching Hub, available on site to support the growing number of students and staff members alike.

The regeneration works are anticipated to cost nearly £100 million, with £35 million set aside specifically to develop the biological sciences, biomedical sciences, chemistry and physiology departments to provide state-of-the-art teaching labs and equipment.

The doors to the new facility and sciences centre are scheduled to open in the first half of 2021, with the number of research and teaching staff members also set to rise.

Principle and vice-chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, Professor George Boyne, said: “Coming in the wake of our single biggest academic recruitment drive in recent years, this is an exciting and dynamic time to be studying and working at the University of Aberdeen, with big investment and bold regeneration ahead.

“Some of the proposals in development will transform estate that has been lost over the years and yet exists at the very heart of our campus.

“As well as bringing neglected spaces back to life, we are looking to create better connectivity that will open up areas of our campus that will be unknown to many.

“This is the first phase of our vision to bring greater vibrancy and cohesion to our Old Aberdeen campus and make it the best it can be as we plan for our next two decades.”
