The concourse is a rectangular space divided into two sections by the gate line, which runs east to west. The section outside the gates has the Dundas Street entrance to the west and the North Hanover Street entrance to the east.

The left luggage and toilets are to the east. There are coffee stands to the south and east of the concourse. There's a row of features across the south of the concourse, from the left-hand (west) end, these include seats and ticket machines. There is an assistance area to the north at the centre of the gates.

Platforms 8 & 9 at the lower level, are separate platforms running east/west with platform 8 westbound lying south of platform 9 eastbound. These platforms can be reached via steps at either end, or via lifts in the middle.

There is step-free access between street and upper levels plus lift access between the lower and upper levels. We therefore believe this station is accessible to Guide Dog and wheelchair users.
