Craiglockhart Campus

Home to Edinburgh Napier University's Business School, Craiglockhart campus blends the old and the new. This campus was originally the site of a hydropathic centre before being converted into a war rehabilitation centre for officers at the onset of World War One. The site was then taken over and converted into a convent for the Society of the Sacred Heart and made a teaching college.

Craiglockhart is set within attractive grounds overlooking Edinburgh, facilities include 200- and 400-seat lecture theatres and language and multimedia labs. This campus is home to our innovation and Enterprise centre. The Lindsay Stewart Lecture Theatre – affectionately known as ‘The Egg’ is iconic to Craiglockhart campus and has incredible views of the city. It can also be used for events and conferences.

At Craiglockhart, our library, along with the Younger Suit has several additional study spaces and over 100 computers. This means it is the perfect place to study or catch up on coursework when you are in between lectures or tutorials.

Bright Red Triangle is our business incubator, and the Bright Red Ventures consultancy are both available on this campus and at Merchiston. Bright Red Triangle is available for all Edinburgh Napier students, staff and alumni. The team supports budding entrepreneurs who want to build a business.
