Lady Thatcher was a chancellor of the private university between 1992 and 1998.

She was prime minster at the time it gained university status in 1983.

The uni, which is in talks with Margaret Thatcher Centre trustees about housing the collection, expects the centre to open in 2019.

Sir Anthony Seldon, the university’s vice-chancellor, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be honouring Lady Thatcher in this way.

“She was an effective chancellor and the new centre is likely to be a huge attraction both for those who knew her and those who didn’t.”
