Building History

Building History

Featuring an impressive open and galleried interior, the Lynn Building was originally designed by William Henry Lynn as the University's library.

Lynn (1829-1915) was an Irish-born architect with a practice in Belfast and the north of England. He is noted for his Ruskinian Venetian Gothic public buildings, which include Chester Town Hall (completed 1869) and Barrow-in-Furness Town Hall (completed 1886).

BUILDING EXPANSION AND REOPENING

The Lynn building was extended between 1912 and 1914 as the need for additional study space for staff and students grew.

Further alterations were carried out in the 1950s and 1980s, including in 1952, when the upstairs reading room was divided by a floor at the level of the galleries. The building reopened as the Graduate School in April 2015 following an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment.
