Inscription. Stockholms högskola bildades 1878; finansierad av privatä och kommunala medel. Öppna föreläsningar hade börjat året innan. År 1904 fick högskolan examensrätt och kunde 1909 flytta in i en egen byggnad, ritad av arkitekt Victor Bodin. Tomten låg väl placerad i anslutning till vetenskapliga institutioner som Observatoriet och Tekniska högskolan på Drottninggatan. Byggnaden i nybarock har två överbyggda ljusgårdar som centrum i planen. I dag ägs och disponeras huset av Folkuniversitetet.
