Mary Stewart Building


The Mary Stewart Building officially opened on Friday 26th October 2016. The building is is part of the GLaSS (Garscube Learning and Social Space) Project and is a dynamic new space on campus providing a flexible study/café facility called 'The Barn' which seats 400, a seminar room for 40-60 people and ten tutorial rooms each seating 10-12 people. The building replaces a small, cramped café and provides much needed study space for students.

The building is named after Mary Stewart who graduated from Cornell University in 1949 and was part of a small close-knit group involved in the rapid development of veterinary medicine at Glasgow under the leadership of Sir William Weipers in the 1950s. Mary was ahead of her time with her focus on the philosophical basis to ethics, animal welfare, the importance of the companion animal/human bond and the handling of bereavement.
