Our History 

One of Dundee’s most successful jute merchants Alexander Henderson built the impressive West Park Mansion House in 1869 in the affluent, leafy West End of Dundee. It was his family home for many years. Alexander’s youngest son CF Henderson was renowned in the city as a very generous benefactor. He was appointed life governor of the University College, now the University of Dundee.

After the death of his father, he donated the Mansion House and grounds to the University where it then became West Park Halls, a hall of residence for the students.

The building has since been tastefully restored back to its former glory, featuring the Italianate designs which were so popular when the Mansion House was built. Decorative columns, stunning corniced ceilings, marble fireplaces and an oak panelled board room, all now available to hire for conferences, weddings and events.
