Clydebank College opened its doors to its new campus at the Queens Quay on the 27th August 2007 and since then has been causing considerable interest in both educational and business realms.
The college campus is proudly built on the world-renowned site of John Brown ship engineering and lies humbly next to the River Clyde. This riverside setting provides a much talked about and unusual backdrop to this dynamic new building and has already been dubbed by its students as the ‘Coolest College this side of the Clyde’.
The 6 acre Queen’s Quay building houses modern engineering and construction workshops, highly equipped science labs and advanced sporting facilities within the fitness suite, which includes a gym ‘Energize’ and games hall. The new campus also houses an impressive conference suite which has been heavily utilised by local and international business since its opening at the start of the academic term. Impressively the conference suite is sponsored by the famous cruise liner Cunard and enjoys stunning views over the River Clyde.
