The John Anderson Campus, the main campus of The University of Strathclyde, is located in Glasgow, Scotland. The campus is self-contained in its own area which straddles the Townhead and Merchant City districts on the north eastern side of the city centre, while being only minutes from the M8 Motorway, George Square and is located midway between Queen Street Railway Station and High Street station on the North Clyde Line.
The John Anderson Campus was originally the only site of Strathclyde University, as the Jordanhill Campus did not become a part of the University until it incorporated Jordanhill College of Education in 1993. The campus is named after John H. D. Anderson (1726–1796), a former Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow, who left instructions in his will describing
"a place of useful learning for the good of mankind and the improvement of science"- a second University for Glasgow that would teach practical subjects and which was also to be appealing to people normally left out of the university system (at the time, particularly women and craftsmen from the city) and a university which wouldn't discriminate against someone because of their religion, race or gender.
Originally named Anderson's Institution (which was established in 1796), the University was renamed to Anderson's University in 1828, partially to fulfil Anderson's vision of two universities in the city of Glasgow. In 1877, it was forced to remove the title of 'University' as it lacked a Royal Warrant to do so - becoming Anderson's College.
Ten years later in 1887 it merged with the Allan Glen's School to become the Glasgow & West of Scotland Technical College. In 1912, the technical college was renamed the Royal Technical College and became the Royal College of Science and Technology in 1956. It joined with the Scottish College of Commerce in 1964 - later the same year, the merged institution became the University of Strathclyde〔(Our Location & Heritage - University of Strathclyde )〕〔(Historical Laboratory Photos The University of Strathclyde - University of the Year 2012/13 - Times Higher Education Awards )〕 as it is still known today.
Large sections of the campus are built on and around grounds which once contained the Glasgow Royal Maternity Hospital. Following the 1940s Bruce Report, Townhead was designated a Comprehensive Development Area (CDA), and much slum housing was demolished. Some of the reclaimed land was rezoned for educational purposes in anticipation of the Royal College's growth into a university. The first of the modern-era buildings to be constructed were the Student's Union, James Weir and Thomas Graham buildings at the turn of the 1960s.
The 1960s and 1970s saw a huge programme of new academic buildings being built, and in line with contemporary fashion at the time with other university expansion programmes of the period many of these buildings were built in the distinctive (and controversial) Brutalist architectural style – the McCance (1964), Stenhouse (1974) and Architecture Buildings (1966) all being good examples of this. The 1980s concentrated on developing the student residences. Below is a synopsis of the campus history, along with the current occupiers of each building in brackets:
