Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms


The Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms of Newcastle University opened on the 11th January 2016.[1] The building on Sandyford Road (no. 89) was previously occupied by PwC Newcastle and acquired by Newcastle University in 2014. The building was refurbished as a modern learning environment, with student input into the design. The building is named in honour of Marjorie Robinson, who died in 1998 and left £8 million to Newcastle University Library.[2] She was the wife of Philip Robinson, the Newcastle bookseller, after whom the University’s Philip Robinson Library is named.
