Story: Auckland region

University clock tower (2nd of 2)

University clock tower

The clock tower of the old arts and commerce building at the University of Auckland was built in the mid-1920s to mark the success of a campaign to keep the university in the central city. For decades it was a landmark, but it has now been dwarfed by other university and central-city buildings. It remains a centrepiece of the campus.
