Armstrong Building Appeal

Newcastle University architect graduate and TV Presenter George Clarke revisited campus to record a special message in support of our Armstrong Building Appeal.

A unique opportunity

For over a century, students have walked the corridors of the Armstrong Building, studied in its rooms and graduated in the historic King’s Hall. One of the most significant of these ceremonies took place on the 13th of November, 1967, when Newcastle University gave Dr Martin Luther King an honorary degree.

But time has taken its toll, and the building loved by so many now needs investment to return it to its former glory and enable the University to provide top quality, contemporary teaching and learning spaces.

The University has already invested £26 million in the development of the Armstrong. Our alumni have already raised £500,000, but we need a final £2.3 million to help complete the work. This is a unique opportunity for alumni and friends to make a lasting mark on the building by contributing to our campaign.
