Mounts Bay occupies five buildings: main building, art block, music/drama block, sports building and 'Qube'. The main building houses most of the departments, with some of the subjects housed in exterior buildings. The newest building, known as the 'Qube' (or 'Cube') was primarily built to teach media.
