(1906, James Miller)

This would be called the Physics Building in most universities but the older name is often used. There is nothing old-fashioned about the research, however, as work is presently being carried out on ways to detect the gravitational waves which pass through our wee bit of the universe! This is now the Kelvin Building, named after Lord Kelvin and it houses astronomy as well as physics. Its Jacobean-style main entrance is decorated with the university`s badge.

This article is based on the guidebook "The Glasgow Guide".

This stands near to the western end of the Main Buildings.
