The Powis Gate building is an early 19th Century granite manse located through the prominent Powis Gate minaret towers on the High Street. Once home to the University's Music Department, it now houses the Alumni Relations team and the University of Aberdeen Development Trust. The building's large boardroom is available to be booked for internal meetings.

The building's modern annexe contains a series of postgraduate offices and the University's Muslim Prayer Room. These are accessed not through the building's main entrance but via a swipe card entrance at the back of the annexe.
