Your University, One Photo at a Time

Stone Plaque from the Old College

Stone Plaque from the Old College

This stone plaque, located directly below the University Tower, is one of the several legacies from the Old College on High Street, demolished in the late 1870s when the University moved to Glasgow’s West End. A smaller plaque below the stone plaque reads:

The stone plaque, above, marked the site in the High Street, Glasgow, of the old College Gateway.

The plaque was gifted to the University by the General Council of Glasgow University and erected on 10th October 1955, to commemorate the fifth centenary of the University in January 1951.

The plaque was salvaged by the University, prior to demolition of the High Street buildings in which it had been incorporated, and re-erected here in 1991.
