The founders of Coatbridge’s original college – and you’d have to go back to 1865 to trace them – would barely recognise the state-of-the-art campus that sits next to Dunbeth Park.
What began as a place to study mining and science has grown to encompass a range of facilities for everything from performing arts, sound production and visual arts to dental studies, computing and hair and beauty.
The Coatbridge Campus recently underwent a £28million transformation, modernising its learning spaces and adding plenty of social spaces – there’s a refectory, the 101 Café, a common room, internet cafes and an airy central atrium that really comes alive during events.
Members of the public can book in for hair or make-up services in the Glass Salons, or for beauty treatments in the Eden Spa and Hush treatment salons.
A brand new suite of dental and science rooms was opened in early-2016 offering a fully-equipped dental surgery with intra-oral camera, a phantom head lab, a decontamination room and range of laboratories.
The Campus also has a purpose-built conference venue, 101 Park Street, which has a 249-seat auditorium and caters for meetings, conventions and even weddings.

Confectionary giant Lees – famous for snowballs, macaroons and coconut ices – has been based in Coatbridge since its establishment in 1931 by grocer’s son John Justice Lees.
