Newcastle University

The University of Newcastle upon Tyne can trace its origins to a School of Medicine and Surgery, established in Newcastle in 1834, and to Armstrong College, which was founded in the city in 1871 for the teaching of physical sciences.

These two colleges formed one division of the federal University of Durham, the Durham Colleges forming the other division. The Newcastle Colleges merged to form King's College in 1937 and, in 1963, when the federal University was dissolved, King's College became the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Sustained expansion since 1945 has resulted in the development of a modern University campus, around the original Armstrong College buildings, on a 45-acre site close to the centre of Newcastle. A vigorous building programme over the past 30 years has created, among other additions to the campus.

Just surfing my way through blogspace looking for stuff on Newcastle Uni.
See loads of your photos are from the Quadrangle, me and my friend always call that "the pretty part of Newcastle Uni." :D

I found it quite hard to get photos of the other parts of the university due to bad light. Maybe I will try again one time soon.

Ncl univ campus is unique. I love it. I passed long 3 and half years. The best place of the campus is the Quadrangle and then the Leazes Park.

I studied at Newcastle for 5 years and it brings back some wonderful memories browsing these pictures. I particularly like the shot of the Armstrong building. I would love to see some more of the Armstrong now that the trees are autumnal.

Thanks :) I'll try and get up there soon but I may have missed the best colours. Check out my Armstrong Park, Armstrong Bridge and Heaton PArk for some autumnal shots.

Thanks for the great photos. I spent many an hour at 'my window' in the downstairs part of the old library. Much better than sitting in the main room upstairs. Claremont Tower looks as austere as ever but it was a great place to be. Happy days.

Thanks.

Claremont Tower is in for some big changes in the next few years. The University are planning to gut it, build a new glass roofed lobby area on Claremont road and demolish Claremont Bridge (the building that goes over Claremont road and is attached to the tower)

Thanks for the heads up.
Both universities are on my visit list in the next few weeks as there has been so many changes of late that I hav'nt captured yet.
