Your University, One Photo at a Time

Gilmorehill Centre

Gilmorehill Centre

Interestingly, not one of the three churches on University Avenue, former and current, have a spire, and the Gilmorehill Centre is no different. Built in 1877, it was originally known as the Anderson Free Church and was built by the same guy who made the Stewart Memorial Fountain in Kelvingrove Park, James Sellars.

In 1963 (or the 1950s, according to some sources) it came into ownership of the University of Glasgow and was converted into an examination hall. In 1997 it was renovated to become the Gilmorehill Centre with funding from the Scottish Arts Council Lottery Fund and the Gifted Seats Scheme.
