The fire is now out and crews will dampen hot spots and monitor the area.
Witness Erin Krebs she saw "billowing smoke" coming from the Old Teachers College.
"I could see all the windows were boarded up," she said.
She initially thought it was a hill fire because there was "so much smoke".
"I arrived at the same time as the fire crew but they went to Donald St as the driveway to the college was blocked off as it looks like it is now a construction site."
