Edinburgh Napier opened its doors as Napier Technical College in 1964, amalgamating with Napier College of Science & Technology and Edinburgh College of Commerce in 1974, before being awarded university status in 1992. The university name changed from Napier to Edinburgh Napier in February 2009.
Merchiston Campus is built around the site of the 13th-century Napier Tower, home of John Napier, the inventor of algorithms.
Craiglockhart Campus houses the War Poets Collection, a dedicated exhibition documenting the works of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon who met at Craiglockhart campus when it was used as a hospital for the treatment of shell-shocked officers during the First World War.
