St.Teresa’s college is situated in the heart of Kochi city in two different locations separated by a distance of roughly half a kilometre. The Arts Block is on the Park Avenue road occupying two acres and 65 cents. The Science Block on T.D road is situated in an area of one acre and 34 cents. Since the campus area is limited, the college has adopted a vertical mode of expansion.
Each block has many buildings with adequate number of classrooms for different programmes offered by the college.
Within this limited space, the college has constructed a multi-purpose indoor stadium in the Science Block in 2003-04 named Teresian Gym Plaza-’75. It doubles up as a common place for the students and faculty for holding seminars, public functions and cultural programmes. It can also be conveniently converted into a floor for indoor games and serves as the Basketball Court.
A new indoor stadium has been constructed and the stadium was inaugurated in March 2014.
