A view of the King's College Gatehouse, as viewed looking towards the west. The architectural style of the building is Gothic Revival. Surmounting the main entrance is a cupola. The supporting structure of the cupola is octagonal. Each side of the octagon has a circular shape located near the roofline where the cupola begins. Two spires with pinnacles frame the cupola on each side. Two lampposts stand in front of the entrance.
