The University was thus now in a position to construct its own buildings. In 1909 the present site was selected for the Library, the Senate House and the Law College. These buildings, which now house the Registrar's Office, Senate Hall and the English Department, were designed by Sir Swinton Jacob and their construction was approved in 1910. The foundation of the Senate House was laid on 17th January 1910 by Sir John Havett, the Chancellor. From the beginning the University has been concerned about women's education.
