Glasgow University Union

Return to previous page


Glasgow University Union was founded in 1885 and accommodated in the John McIntyre Building, which opened in 1890. The premises became too cramped for the growing number of students at the University, and a new building at the foot of University Avenue was designed by the architects Arthur & McNaughton and erected between 1929 and 1931. Both the organisation and the building were often referred to as the "Men's Union" before women students were permitted to join in 1980. An extension to the Union was designed by Keppie, Henderson & Partners and opened in 1965.
