History

Main Audley Cooper's Hill building was originally a private home, built in the Victorian Gothic style and known as Coopershill until 1871 when it was converted into the Indian Civil Engineering College.

At the beginning of the 20th century the buildings were returned to private use before becoming a teacher training college in 1934 and eventually merging with Brunel University in 1980.
