Quadrangle


The Quadrangle lies at the heart of Newcastle University with gardens and thoroughfare, which is a favourite place for graduation photographs. It is surrounded on all sides, by some of the oldest buildings on the campus, including 6 listed buildings. The entrances to the Quadrangle from the south-east from King's Road are via the iconic Arches (1911) and the Student Forum open space. At the west side of the Quadrangle is the Armstrong Building (1887). The east side is formed by the Hatton Gallery (1911), Architecture Building, and Old Library Building (1911). At the north-west end is the Percy Building (1958), and a gateway to Queen Victoria Road, and a pedestrian route to the adjoining space to the north of the Old Library Building.

The gardens in the Quadrangle were laid out and planted in 1947-1949 by JS. Allen, Professor of Town and Country Planning.[1] They were designed as a memorial garden, with a plaque in the gardens stating: "1914-18. 1939-45. This garden quadrangle was laid out in 1949 in memory of all members of the Newcastle Division of the University of Durham who gave their lives in two wars."
