Round Reading Room

Round Reading Room

The Round Reading Room was built in 1939 and sits on the north side of University Avenue, directly across from the Memorial Gate and the North Front of the Main Building. The building is now a Category A listed building and contains a large array of computers for student use inside it.

Finally, a little feature I’ll call What If?. What if things were different? What if different plans had been undertaken during the expansions of the University’s Gilmorehill campus?
The Reading Room was meant to be the centrepiece of a new quadrangle on the north side of University Avenue. The quadrangle was supposed to incorporate a simple clocktower and was to house the new library. As you can tell, the quadrangle was never built.
