Philip Robinson Library


The Philip Robinson Library is the main library of Newcastle University (there are also subject specialist libraries in Medicine and Law, and the Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms). It is located on Jesmond Road West and connected with the rest of the campus via Hadrian Bridge, a footbridge over Newcastle's internal motorway. The library was built 1980-1982 by Faulkner Brown Hendy Watkinson Stonor[1], replacing  the Old Library. The library was named after Philip Robinson (d. 1989), a bookseller and a major benefactor to the library. The library underwent a major refurbishment over the 2012 summer vacation.[2]
