This university building was designed by the architects Bartlett and Gray of Nottingham and was built by the Nottingham district team of Laing's Construction Company for the University of Nottingham, with work starting in the autumn of 1965. In an article published in February 1968 in their monthly newsletter Team Spirit, Laing describe the building as consisting of five buildings in one grouped round a courtyard with a lecture theatre off at a tangent. Originally housing the departments of geography, social science, politics, law and banking, it has subsequently been renamed the Sir Clive Grainger Building and now houses the School of Geography and the School of Economics
