    In 1967 Lord Stephen Taylor of Harlow was asked by Newfoundland Premier Joseph Smallwood to become president and vice-chancellor of Memorial University of Newfoundland.

    Upon accepting and taking up this position, Lord Taylor said:

    I think it would be rather fitting if the oldest town in the New World were linked to the newest town in the Old World.

    HISTORYHARLOW CAMPUS

    1968 In 1968 Memorial purchased a former brewery, The Maltings, at Harlow, England, and renovated it into living quarters for 33 students. Also at this time a former Victorian school house, St Johns House, was purchased and converted into faculty accommodation. The first Memorial University students came to Harlow in January 1969, to carry out education and engineering internships in Harlow factories and schools over one semester.

    1973In 1973 a former butchers shop and flat in Market Street were acquired and converted into two apartments, each accommodating four in twin rooms for the use of faculty and their families.

    1988An extension was built onto the north side of The Maltings in 1988 to provide increased office space and a library; the quiet room and small TV room were converted into a lecture room and small computer room.

    1997In 1997 the university acquired St Johns Cottage, located next to The Maltings and dating from 1650. Originally three workers cottages, they were converted into one house in the early 1960s, providing accommodation for 10 students, with a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility, study and shared bathroom/shower facilities.

    The name of the building was changed to Cabot House in recognition of the 500th anniversary of John Cabots discovery of Newfoundland, which coincided with the 50th anniversary of Harlow as a town.

    Education internships in local Harlow schools, a practice that still continues. The campus is now used by undergraduate students from Newfoundland who wish to study for a semester or complete a work placement abroad, as well as by faculty members and graduate students engaging in research and/or further study. Programs that have been offered at Harlow include social work, engineering, business, nursing, medicine and pharmacy. The Faculty of Arts offers both a summer program and an arts semester at Harlow for students.

    2002In May 2002 the campus closed for four months to enable major refurbishment of The Maltings to accommodate 51 students in The Maltings and Cabot House, and three faculty and their families in 44 & 46 Market Street and St. Johns Cottage.

    2007Since April 1968, Harlow Campus had been governed by the Harlow Campus Trust, which directed the facilities on behalf of Memorial. In April 2007 the Harlow Campus Trust was dissolved and replaced with MUN (UK) LTD., a company limited by guarantee. MUN (UK) LTD. has a board of directors who meet at least twice a year to direct the operations of the campus. Under this arrangement, Harlow Campus is run by a general manager who operates the campus for students in academic (credit) and professional development (non-credit) programs. All programs are developed and overseen from St Johns by the vice-president (academic).
