Glasgow Caledonian University announced plans to open a satellite campus in Soho.
The New York City location for the British University will have Wi-Fi and advanced technology installed for its students. The site will serve as the United States campus in the posh neighborhood. The location at 64 Wooster Street will sit blocks away from boutiques, businesses and high-end fashion stores in the district.
“Extending our global network is vital to GCU’s future growth, and New York will play a pivotal role in this,” said professor Pamela Gillies, principal and vice-chancellor of GCU. “GCU New York will provide an important opportunity for us to work with new academic and business partners, will significantly raise our international profile and will offer valuable exchange opportunities to students and staff on both sides of the Atlantic.”
In addition to the Wi-Fi and technology offerings, the Soho campus will have the ability to connect with other campus locations. The New York City campus will offer degree and nondegree programs, including the business of fashion, luxury brand management, finance and risk management. Glasgow Caledonian University’s roots date back to 1875. It has about 17,000 students worldwide.
