Police said at least 12 people were inside the building, near the R Premadasa cricket ground, at the time of the collapse.
Two of those who were trapped have been rescued but are in a serious condition, while a search operation is under way for others buried in the rubble.
Pushpa Soysa, the head nurse at the National Hospital of Sri Lanka, said seven bodies were brought to the hospital.
Police, soldiers and firefighters were searching for those believed trapped, television pictures showed.
