The Founders building is the heart of the College. As soon as you enter the grounds through the main gates it strikes you in all its glory. Many alumni were struck by it when they arrived for their interview or when they first started their course and spent many hours in it during their student days. There were reported hauntings on some of the upper floors and the clock tower always let you know that time was passing.
As well as providing accommodation and dining for a large number of female students it also provided:-
- the administrative centre for the University
- the location for a high proportion of lectures and seminars
- the main meeting room
- Picture Gallery
- Health Centre
- Student Union offices
