Why Cumbernauld?

State of the art learning 

Our recently-renovated campus offers state-of-the-art facilities - like Taste, New College Lanarkshire’s gourmet student restaurant - and there’s even a dedicated student radio station. In Cumbernauld itself there's Tryst Sports Centre and Broadwood Stadium, as well as one of Scotland’s leading theatres. Fancy a change of scene? Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh are just a short train ride away.

Our Cumbernauld Campus sits at the very heart of the Cumbernauld community, and students are well-placed to take advantage of the retail and leisure facilities in the town centre.

There’s two sides to the Campus building: the distinctive architecture of the original B-listed, Gillespie, Kidd & Coia-designed landmark that’s visible for miles around, plus a three-storey teaching block with conference and business centre that was completed in 2006.

The hub of the Campus is The Street atrium, which buzzes with live broadcasts from the in-house radio station, RadioActive.


The Taste training restaurant is highly-rated on TripAdvisor, and it’s just a short walk from the Fusion hair and beauty salon.

The recording studios have been professionally designed and house more than £300,000 of the latest, industry-standard equipment.

In addition to the teaching areas, students have plenty of spaces within the Campus to eat, relax, study or engage with others.

Got some well-earned time off?

Palacerigg Country Park, Cumbernauld Theatre, Broadwood Stadium, Colzium Estate in Kilsyth and sculptor Andy Scott’s 10m-high statue Arria are all worth a visit.
