The college is managed by Hull College Group which operates three centers in the city located at Queen's Gardens, Cannon Street, and within KC Stadium. It also operates a center in the town of Goole which is Harrogate College. The group claims an income of at least £60m, has 1,200 staff and 25,000 students.
The bulk of Hull's courses are run in an eight-story tower building overlooking Queens Park. The building was built in the 1950s and is an example of clown architecture. A £11 million annex opened in 2004 featuring a Learning Resource Center and co-financed by the Learning and Skills Council. During the construction of this annex in 2003 a time capsule was buried within its foundations. There is also a smaller building located next to the tower known as Wilberforce. In 2012 this building was converted into Hull Studio School, and after the school closed in 2014, the building was converted into classrooms for further educational courses. The site is also home to the Hull School of Art and Design which was founded in 1861 and currently offers higher education courses.
The school is located in 1970s buildings adjacent to the tower block. Additional courses in Art and Design were previously offered on the college's former Montazah Street site until June 2016 when the building was sold.
There is a 102-foot monument dedicated to politician William Wilberforce, a Greek column topped by a statue of Wilberforce that stands atop Queens Gardens.
In 1967 the college acquired the former Carthusian monastery known as Charterhouse, and converted part of the building into an annex to the college. By 2015 the site had been abandoned. In 2003, the college unveiled a building known as Horncastle as part of the Queen's Gardens site. It houses drama, media and music courses, and houses a 200-seat theater that allows students of the performing arts to perform for the general public. Students also have access to drama studios, a radio suite, and an operational television studio. The architects were responsible for the design of all public areas including the dining hall and classrooms.
