Dates of existence
The Glasgow Athenaeum was founded in 1847 to provide courses in commerce, languages, music and the fine arts. Classes were initially held in the Assembly Rooms, Ingram Street, but, in 1888, the Athenaeum moved to a new building at St George's Place and Buchanan Street.
In 1888, the commercial teaching side of the Glasgow Athenaeum separated in name to become the Athenaeum Commercial College.
In 1890, a School of Music was established as a discrete department of the Athenaeum, with its own principal and prospectus.
