The College had planned to house its expanding health care courses in a new development on Eldon Street, creating a single site campus around the existing Park Drive building. In 1987 the Scottish Education Department carried out a feasibility study to consider the extent to which vacant accommodation at Jordanhill College of Education could meet the needs of the Health Studies faculty. In 1988 the Scottish Office decided that the new health care courses should be housed at Jordanhill and so the Southbrae Campus was initiated.

The Schools of Radiography and Chiropody took up occupation of the Crawfurd Building at the Southbrae Campus in January 1991, the School of Occupational Therapy in February 1991 and the School of Orthoptics in March 1991. The Faculty of Health Studies at the Crawfurd Building, was officially inaugurated on Friday 13 December 1991 by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales who unveiled the commemorative plaque.
