Notes: According to legend, the Residence Administration Building's clock tower was built accidentally; at the design stage, someone allegedly went into the architect's room to use the telephone, and while there sketched a clock onto the plans for the building and thus the clock tower was built.
The plans for the Residence Administration Building required that the Neville Homestead, a nineteenth century farmhouse which had existed beside the UNB campus since 1876, be moved from its original spot and re-situated further east on the campus.
