Building profile

Adam House

This is the location of the University's main examinations halls. There is also a fully equipped theatre in the basement, which can be let out for performances.

The name commemorates Adam Square, by John Adam, 1761, a terrace of houses on this site, replaced in the 1870s when Chambers Street was built.
