2016 marked the 175th Anniversary of the Young Men’s Mental Improvement Society, a predecessor institution of the University. During the year we began 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. Learn more about our buildings and the important figures below.
