The Quadrangle

Students in the Quadrangle

This is the oldest part of the University campus.  Its well-tended gardens and ivy-clad walls provide the backdrop for many graduation photographs.  In the summer months it’s a relaxing and beautiful place to sit.

At one time, cars could drive through the Arches and in to the Quadrangle.  In 1949 the Quadrangle was turned into a formal garden in memory of members of Newcastle University who gave their lives in the two World Wars.
