The Pharmacy Building

The School of Pharmacy started in 1871. The building itself was completed in 1873, and was used as a chemistry laboratory. It was later enlarged to house the School of Pharmacy as well as the University Hospital Pharmacy. In 1931 when the Chemistry Building (now the Department of Architecture, and the University Stores) was completed, the Chemistry Department moved into it. This allowed the School of Pharmacy to expand. The School had additional elbow room when University Hospital Pharmacy moved out, and into its new premises at the Medical Center, when it was completed in 1970. Unfortunately the School closed down in 1977, and the building was partially used until its complete renovation in 1994.
