The 65-year-old royal will officially open the new Atrium centre at the education establishment’s Paisley campus, which has spaces for meetings as well as a cafe.
In a statement, Craig Mahoney, the principal and vice-chancellor at the University of the West of Scotland, said: “We are absolutely delighted and hugely honoured that HRH the Princess Royal will officially open the new state-of-the-art Atrium at our Paisley campus. UWS is strategically committed to providing sustainable, contemporary and inspirational learning environments.
“We aim to be the most technologically enabled university in the UK, with the most modern, outstanding and varied pedagogic methods of delivery. This will underpin our person-centred approach to learning that prepares graduates for future success. The university’s continued investment in facilities and services place its students in a particularly strong position in the sector.”
Mr Mahoney also spoke at his “pride” about having the Princess Royal attend the event to mark the occasion.
He added: “We are extremely proud of our Paisley campus and are particularly pleased that the Princess Royal will also get the opportunity to view new facilities across the campus and meet a range of colleagues involved in these new developments and their use.”
