Bell College was a higher education college based in Hamilton and Dumfries in Scotland. Founded in 1972, the College merged with the University of Paisley on 1 August 2007, it is now part of the renamed University of the West of Scotland.


The College was created in 1972, and was initially known as Bell College of Technology. The main campus was constructed in Almada Street, Hamilton. A "Memorandum of Understanding" between the College and the University of Strathclyde was signed in 1993 to allow the College to offer degree level courses. In 1995, the Lanarkshire and Dumfries & Galloway Colleges of Nursing & Midwifery were amalgamated into Bell College.

On 1 August 2007 Bell College merged with the University of Paisley to form the largest 'modern' (post-1992) Scottish University. The amalgamated body began life as the University of Paisley, but applied to be renamed as 'The University of the West of Scotland'. This change came into effect on 30 November 2007.
