New College Lanarkshire Motherwell Campus is a further education college located in the Ravenscraig area of Motherwell, North Lanarkshire, Scotland.

History[edit]

Originally sited next to Our Lady's High School and Fir Park Stadium in Motherwell, the original building has since been demolished for redevelopment as a housing estate.

The college moved into a new campus on August 2009, which is located 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the old site.[1] It was officially opened on January 2010 by the Princess Royal.[2]

The campus is fully equipped, and has an on-site nursery.[3] There are two librarys/learning centres which members of the public can use on a drop in basis.[4]
