The oldest parts of the College date from the time of King’s Hall, including the range behind the Clock Tower, which are medieval, and the Great Gate, which was built at the beginning of the 16th century. The tower once stood about 20 yards from where it is now. It was moved to its present site when Great Court was laid out.

Many of the buildings were built through the efforts of Thomas Nevile, who became Master of Trinity in 1593, including the main features of Great Court and a large part of the beautiful, cloistered court on the side of the Hall that faces the river.

Nevile’s Court was completed in the late 17th century when the library designed by architect Sir Christopher Wren was built. New Court and courts on the other side of Trinity Street opposite the Great Gate were erected in the 19th century. Recent buildings include Blue Boar Court and Burrell’s Field.
