Lecture Theatre

The campus, home to the University’s Business School, has undergone a £25m redevelopment and features a 200-seat egg-shaped lecture theatre designed by BDP Architects – Building Design Partnership of Glasgow. We have seventeen archived photos of the Craiglockhart Campus building available upon request.

The new campus development interfaces with the site’s existing historic 19th century university building. Alongside the egg-shaped lecture theatre is a 400-seat wedge-shaped lecture theatre and a teaching block. The Craiglockhart campus is due to re-open to Napier students and staff in September 2004. The contractors were HBG.
