This summer, a big birthday bash was due to commence: the 100th birthday of the King’s Buildings campus! However due to the pandemic, events will be postponed for one year, and KB101 will commence in July 2021.
In July 1920, King George V laid the foundation stone for the first building, the Joseph Black Building, on what was formerly the site of West Mains Farm.

Last summer I was given the incredible opportunity to intern with the School of Physics and Astronomy’s Equality and Diversity (E&D) team to develop their new website and wiki.
As this was my first ever job as a developer, I came into it not really knowing what to expect. Being a bisexual woman of colour, however, I understood the sheer importance of having a strong E&D presence in any institution, especially when it involves a field that has traditionally lacked diversity. Therefore, it was truly refreshing to see how much the School’s team were taking direct responsibility to change this fact.
