The Hub

Posted by Jackie on August 26, 2008

The Hub is to be a new all purpose student facility at Glasgow University, containing refectories, shops, pharmacy, a GP surgery and all sorts. Ever since I’ve been at the university the building has just been a concrete shell, but there has been building work going on the building for the last academic year, and at last it seems to be taking shape. It’s situated opposite the University Library.

    Welcome back from your hols Jackie. This may sound a bit whacky but this pic reminded me of the Burrell. Not the building so much, but the lawn.

    Have you been out there?

    The green and blue colours of the building nicely fit with the green lawn (that may sound a bit whacky, too).

    Ah, The Hub, that brings back memories, although the glass looks a bit different since I was there.

    Your blog was recommended to me by a friend who thought I might like it when I get a bit homesick (I moved to London about 6 years ago). You take really good photos.

    I love the colours. They turns a glass box into something quite interesting 🙂

    Oh my! Brings to my mind a stained-glass building! Very striking!! (and far more attractive than concrete!)

    I kind of like this. I might get to dislike it over time though!

    I’m glad you like the pictures, Eileen. I’ve picked up quite a few “expats” over the last few months – glad to be of service!

    Thanks for all the kind comments everyone 🙂

    It’ll be interesting to see what the new Hub is like on the inside. The Hub Shop was a really useful place for some of the important things in life: pens, crisps, and juice. I’m confused though; is the university health service only in its current location temporarily, to move into the new Hub?

    Stephen, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it wouldn’t let me – obviously your bouncers didn’t like my face! Anyway, I like your most recent photo, and re the Hub – I’m honestly not sure about the uni health service, or if the GP/pharmacy will be a new thing in addition to that. As I’m a mature student and live out I’ve not had anything to do with the uni services, so it’s all a bit of a mystery to me I’m afraid!

    Oh it wasn’t this good 2 years back! But it’s good to have a peek on the HUB here!

    I wish there’s still opportunity for me to visit Glasgow again!
