King's Quad, Newcastle University


King's Quad is a new courtyard area, within the Armstrong Building at Newcastle University. A statue of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, located in the Quad, was unveiled on 13th November, 2017, on the 50th anniversary of his visit to the University to accept an honorary degree. The courtyard was developed as part of a major refurbishment programme at the University in 2017. The courtyard is accessed from the Student Forum area, through the arch of the Jubilee Exhibition Tower, which up to 2017 had closed wooden doors. Learn more...
