The college is composd of four ranges set around an inner courtyard. In the south east corer is the former chapel, which served as a farm cottage in the 20th century. The east wall of the east range is the most complete medieval survivor, and this includes the entrance gateway.

The College is often used as a gallery exhibition space for art and crafts.
