The University Archives Reference Collection, University Buildings, Sites, Landmarks subgroup contains clippings, correspondence, news releases, publications, reports, speeches, and related archival material concerning the physical features of the University landscape. This is an artificial collection, maintained by Special Collections staff.

North Carolina State University was established in 1887 as the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (A College). The College opened in 1889 with one building - the current Holladay Hall - six faculty, and courses in the agricultural and mechanical arts, adding a curriculum in applied science in 1893. By the turn of the century the College had grown to some half dozen buildings, about 300 students, and had begun to diversify its curricula. In 1917, the institution's name was changed to North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (State College). In 1931 the College greatly reworked its curricula as it underwent consolidation. Along with North Carolina College for Women and the University of North Carolina, it became a part of the Consolidated University of North Carolina,. North Carolina State is now one of the constituent institutions of the multi-campus University of North Carolina system, having received university status, and, after some controversy, assumed its current name in 1965. As of 2007, N.C. State had a student body of nearly 30,000, nearly two thousand faculty, and research and program expenditures of over $440 million.
