The Gateway Building

The Gateway Building

In August 2016, Trinity College commenced classes in the Gateway building. The $28 million building is the largest in the history of the College and a milestone in its growth and development.


Construction of the Gateway building was officially completed in early August 2016. As the name suggests, the building forms a bridge between the College and the University of Melbourne.

The Gateway building is home to world-class teaching facilities including 25 tutorial rooms, an auditorium capable of seating up to 300 people, five drama studios, an art gallery, five music practice rooms, student common spaces and kitchen, computer and physics laboratories and archival and cultural collection storage.

The Gateway building integrates Trinity College’s education complex, offering flexible spaces that can be used by all students of the College. It was designed by Trinity alumni Craig Brown (TC 1982) and Steven McIldowie (TC 1972) from McIldowie Partners and was built by Kane Constructions. The carefully considered design of the building features modern elements within a design that compliments the existing College buildings and architecture. It also has a number of environmentally sustainable design features.

Trinity College is a Campaign Partner of the University of Melbourne's Believe Campaign.
