Edinburgh Napier University opened its doors to students as Napier Technical College in 1964, taking its name from John Napier, the inventor of logarithms and the decimal point, who was born in 1550 in the medieval tower house of Merchiston Castle (the site of the University’s Merchiston campus). His statue stands outside the entrance to the main building on Craighouse Campus today. In 1966, it was renamed Napier College of Science and Technology. Three years later, it merged with the Sighthill-based Edinburgh College of Commerce to form Napier College of Commerce and Technology, which became a Central Institution in 1985.
In February 2009 the University launched its new title, Edinburgh Napier University, to reflect its location in Scotland’s capital city.
