A multi-million pound centre for sports and physical activity is to be built on Cathedral Street in the heart of Glasgow to boost health and well-being across the University and in the wider community. The centre will house top-of-the-range teaching, research and recreational facilities, and will support the promotion of physical activity. It will open in 2011, to coincide with completion of the nearby building for the Faculty of Education, and the run-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
It forms part of the £300 million Estate Development Plan for the University's city centre John Anderson Campus.
The ambitious plans include:
* A fitness suite, six-court sports hall, aerobics/dance studio * Three squash courts * A 25m swimming pool, steam and sauna room * Assessment / treatment rooms * A human function laboratory and specialist academic teaching facilities * Computer teaching space * A cafe
