Armstrong Building, Newcastle University


Armstrong BuildingThe Armstrong Building at Newcastle University is located on Queen Victoria Road. It was built for the College of Physical Science, a forerunner of today's Newcastle University. The building was designed by Robert J. Johnson and W.H. Knowles. The foundation stone was laid by Sir W.G. Armstrong on the 15th June 1887. It was built in three phases of construction, with the north-east wing being the first to open in 1888. The building was completed and officially opened by King Edward VII in 1906. The Armstrong Building is Grade II listed.[1] The east side of the building forms part of the Quadrangle, the south side borders on to the Student Forum area and features the Jubilee Exhibition Tower. The entrance through the arch of the Jubilee Exhibition Tower provides access to a new courtyard, King's Quad, opened as part of a major refurbishment of the Armstrong Building in 2017. The north side of the building, with its main entrance, faces Queen Victoria Road.
