The Fraser Building was a renovation of the original HUB Building, opened in the 1960s as a specimen of the architectural monstrosities of the era. Almost 50 years later, its one of the nicest buildings on campus (the nicest on campus if you believe the ultra scientific polling of this website’s poll for October), opened on January 13th 2009 by Sir William Kerr Fraser and Lady Marion Fraser.

Visitors to the building’s second floor are greeted with these characters from the University’s past, hiding behind them small meeting rooms for meeting with advisers. (If anyone can name them, you get extra credit.)

The Student Services website is here, and you can find more posts about the Fraser Building here.

    Is that Donald Dewar on the left? Can’t quite tell for the reflection.

    The middle one is Janet Galloway – that was really bugging me as I knew I had seen that exact picture before.

    Actually, the Fraser was opened as The Refectory, which was large, open, nasty cafeteria (which sold bad food). It only became the Hub in the early 80s, after a substantial overhaul, and remodelling. So it’s now onto its third incarnation.
