Boiler House


The Main Boiler House on King's Road was built in 1923. In 2016-17 the Boiler House was redeveloped into include an events space for student and staff events, such as congregation receptions, musical performance and award ceremonies. As well as the internal refurbishment, the development included the restoration of the exterior features, including the oak doors, crenelations, and other decorative features.[1] From 1949 the building housed the Emerson Cavitation Tunnel (propeller testing and hydrodynamics research facility); this was relocated to the University's Blyth Marine Station in c.2017.
