This year marks the 175th Anniversary of the Young Men’s Mental Improvement Society, a predecessor institution of the University. During the year we are beginning a process of renaming many of our buildings, moving away from the largely descriptive former names and introducing names of important figures connected to areas of the University’s work. Find out more here about the first buildings to be renamed.
