Opening in 1905, Building 28 (previously known as Building 4 West) accommodated printing, plumbing, gasfitting and carpentry trades teaching. It now houses the RMIT Postgraduate Association.
On the north-facing wall of Building 28, you will find a large mural (part of it is now blocked by Building 8). Created by community artists over an eight-month period in 1978, it depicts the origins of the Working Men's College. The project was led by Dr Geoff Hogg, who is Coordinator of Public Art/Art in Public Space in the School of Art. A list of those who contributed time and materials to the project is painted beside it.
