The Attenborough family and the University

The Attenboroughs have a special connection with our University – a connection that dates back over 90 years.

As a result, there are several buildings bearing the illustrious family name - Attenborough Arts Centre is the focus of the University’s arts scene, the Attenborough Arboretum is a woody adjunct to our Botanic Garden, and the 18-storey Attenborough Tower rises from the centre of campus and is a prominent landmark across the city.
