Wills Memorial


Officially opened in 1925, the Wills Memorial Building houses the University’s School of Law and the School of Earth Sciences, in addition to hosting graduation ceremonies twice a year and a whole host of public events.

The tower tours allow the public to see behind the grand facade and experience the splendour of the Great Hall, Council Chamber and ornate libraries. The view from the top of Wills Tower, some 68 metres above Park Street, is unparalleled and tour guides give a unique insight into the history of the building, which was opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1925 before being badly damaged during the Blitz in 1940.

Saturdays (first of the month): 11 am and 1 pm
