Regarding University Presbyterian Church and Student Center. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "Designed in the Neo-Gothic Revival style, this campus ministry church is veneered with Lannonstone and brick and features design elements of Tudor-Gothic. The Rev. Matthew C. Allison worked tirelessly to promote the Presbyterian campus ministry on the UW campus, which culminated in the construction of this church. Religious campus ministries emerged on state-supported college campuses in the early twentieth century as a response to the prohibition of religious instruction in state schools."
