The New Levine Building

Plan and Facilities

Our goal is to build a high quality, durable and environmentally sustainable new building that will provide state-of-the-art residential, teaching and learning facilities. The building will meet the highest standards of quality, sustainability and energy efficiency, and has been designed to serve Trinity for hundreds of years. 

The new Levine Building will include:

  • 46 en suite study bedrooms

  • An auditorium to host lectures and performances

  • 5 dedicated teaching rooms

  • a large flexible function room

  • An informal study/community area with cafe 

  • A library reception, librarian’s office, and wheelchair access to two floors of the library

  • An additional formal study area

  • A central administrative hub

  • Music practice rooms

  • 2 student kitchens and a student laundry

  • Landscaping of Library Quad 



The Levine Building has been designed to be fully accessible, as part of a major development to the college estate that will improve accessibility to both our current and historic facilities. 

The new Levine Building link will provide level access to the Library reception area when approached from either the Library Quad or from the Central Foyer of the Levine building.  A new platform lift in the Library reception area will allow wheelchair access to the retained Library entrances on both levels.

The Levine Building itself is designed to be fully accessible and will include the following:

  • 8 fully accessible en suite bedrooms integrated into new student accommodation, all designed to allow for the provision of ceiling mounted hoists.

  • Two student kitchens with accessible work surfaces.

  • New disabled toilets, as well as a changing places facility, in the main building.

  • Hearing Loops in the Auditorium, Function Room and Teaching Rooms.

  • Level access to all public areas and teaching rooms at ground floor level, with two new lifts for access to other floors.

  • A new platform lift to give access to both levels of the War Memorial library.

In a separate project, we are in the process of identifying ways to make some of the other communal areas of college – including the SCR and Beer Cellar – more fully accessible. This will involve a combination of solutions including integrating new lifts into a number of challenging historic spaces, and this work is due to be completed in summer 2022.
