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.

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.
