Vice-Chancellor Professor Glyn Davis has turned the ceremonial sod for Trinity College’s new Gateway building to mark the first stage of the project.

The Gateway will be located near the western end of Tin Alley and will link Trinity and the University.

The building will house teaching facilities, including laboratories, tutorial rooms and an auditorium, an art gallery and studio, music practice rooms and drama spaces.

On a recent sunny afternoon, the Vice-Chancellor was joined by various key Trinity staff, including Mr Campbell Bairstow, Provost, Mr Jim Craig, Chairman of the Board, and other members of the board.

The Reverend Canon Professor Dorothy Lee, Dean of the Theological School, was present to offer a prayer for the new building.

Also on site for the occasion were three representatives from each school of the College: Baden Hitchcock, current residential College student; Melissa Clark, current Theological School student; and Su Li Yeoh, Trinity College Foundation Studies (TCFS) Student Services Acting Manager and TCFS alumna.
