The 5 buildings consist of a double storey lecture hall with 4 lecture rooms and meeting rooms, an administration block, a fully equipped canteen with offices located above as well as a double volume library with mezzanine level. The structure also boasts a computer room, a chapel with a mezzanine choir level, basement ablutions as well a first floor vestry. From the amphitheatre a concrete bell spire towers above the facility.
