Ranked among the capital’s earliest skyscrapers and clad in Portland Stone, Senate House is home to the University’s world-famous library, as well as administrative offices and meeting rooms. It was the first large-scale building in the country to be heated by electricity, using an early form of storage heater. The offices were naturally ventilated, but an early form of air conditioning was installed in the main public rooms.


On the 26th June 1933, King George V laid the foundation stone at Senate House during a historic ceremony
