History

The Glasgow Athenaeum Commercial College was established in 1888 to look after the commercial teaching side of the Glasgow Athenaeum. The two institutions shared the Athenaeum building. In 1903, the College became a Scottish Central Institution funded by the Scotch Education Department. In 1915, in order to conduct a public appeal for funds for a new building, the College was reconstituted as the Glasgow and West of Scotland Commercial College (Incorporated).
