The Taylor Building consists of four large blocks, plus a connecting overhead walkway containing offices, and spans a site between the High Street and the Regent Building. Blocks C, D and E flank the Scott Brown Quadrangle, a small garden with a central sculpture. The building houses all of the University's language departments. It also contains the Law faculty, the Taylor Library, the IT training room and several classrooms and offices.

Each block has multiple entrances. The Law Library can be found on the first floor up the stairs through the Block C entrances located opposite the Old Brewery and under the bridge section of the building.

The building opened in 1964 and commemorates Sir Thomas Murray Taylor CBE, QC, DD, LLD, MA, LLB, Professor of Law 1935-48 and Principal 1948-1962.
