Dalrymple Hall


Belhaven Terrace West was designed by the architect James Thomson (1835-1905) and built in the early 1870s. The University acquired five of the houses at the west end of the terrace and employed the architect WRN Ramsay to convert them to a hall of residence. Dalrymple Hall opened to students in October 1965.

The hall is named for one of Scotland's most famous jurists, James Dalrymple (1619-1695), 1st Viscount Stair. Stair was a graduate of the University (1637) and taught here from 1641 to 1647.
