Below the spine are lecture theatres, studios, workshops and other facilities that do not require a view. Courtyards are dropped into this level to provide access and light for the studios.

At the northern end, the spine terminates at the Amenities Building that contains a gymnasia, swimming pools, fitness rooms, canteens and other amenities for both staff and students. A main service road at the rear links all facilities. Above this are the student hostels terraced against the hillside with staff housing at the northern end.
