King Edward VII Building, Newcastle University


The King Edward VII Building at Newcastle University forms part of the east and south parts of the Quadrangle. It was built in 1911 and designed by W.H. Knowles for King Edward VII School of Art, which was part of Armstrong College (a predecessor of todays University). The building now hosts the Hatton Gallery and Fine Art. The King Edward VII Building is Grade II listed.[1] The south section of the building adjoins The Arches, over which there is a statue of King Edward VII.

During the First World War the King Edward VII Building was requisitioned to house the 1st Northern General Hospital. This was staffed by students and staff associated with the Medical School. Over the course of the war the hospital took in at least 41,896 servicemen.[2]
