    The building has a complex history and is named after Sir Arthur Munro Sutherland, possibly Newcastle's greatest philanthropist. It housed the Newcastle Medical School from 1851 prior to its move to Kings's Road in 1939. Following a substantial gift from Sutherland the building then became the Newcastle Dental Hospital and Sutherland Dental School in 1948 with Sutherland as President of its Governors. Then in 1978 the Dental School moved to Framlington Place. The original building still bears his name as The Sutherland Building, Administrative HQ of Northumbria University.
