Inaugurated in 1929
City-designated heritage site

As the centerpiece of the collection of Imperial University-era buildings, the College of Liberal Arts is covered with ribbed tiles and adorned with Romanesque elements on its exterior. The building features such distinctive details as finely worked arched windows and doors, gables and corner tiles, all of which deserve proper appreciation. The spacious entrance portico is distinct from those of other buildings constructed in the same period, which is a testament to the pivotal role played by the Japanese-era Faculty of Literature and Politics (predecessor of the College of Liberal Arts). A sculpture by the famous local artist Ju Ming from his Taichi series stands in a pond on the building’s west side, which adds to the artistic atmosphere of the NTU campus.
