We are conscious of the significance of this building and the role it played in the lives of the people of Belfast and beyond. For this reason we want to share the memories with as wide an audience as possible. This includes the artefacts, the interior, exterior and windows from the College Square East building and the classic furniture. Other memories are captured in images taken over the last 100 years from the staff who worked here to events run in the college and even normal classes.

The galleries above include over 400 images and have been categorised as follows: The Building, which includes images of the stained glass windows and original drawings; the Central Hall (a focal point of the building); the staircase; the vestibule; artefacts used in teaching over the last 100 years which were retrieved from the College Square East building. Some of these images and artefacts are now on display around the Titanic Quarter building. The section ‘Through the ages’ captures photographs of staff and students from the 1900s to the present day including photographs taken before they left to fight in the Great War, occupation cards required by staff during the Second World War and images of staff in more recent times. ‘Through the ages’ also includes many historical images including the various construction phases and more recent images.
