Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
King's College (King's College of Our Lady and St. Nicholas in Cambridge) was the second royal foundation in Cambridge, inaugurated by Henry VI in 1441. William Wilkins was a proponent of both the Greek Revival and Gothic Revival styles. The stone entrance screen integrates fully with the Gatehouse. Wilkins also constructed the South Range with Great Hall and Library (also known as the New Buildings) in the same building campaign, 1823-1828.
