It refers to a place, they gather in the same place, i.e. together. It is an 
idiom.

of place: at the same place, together (En 100:2; Jos., Bell. 2, 346; s. 
συνέρχομαι 1a) Mt 22:34; 1 Cor 11:20; 14:23; B 4:10; IEph 5:3; εἶναι ἐπὶ τὸ αὐ. 
(TestNapht 6:6) Lk 17:35; Ac 1:15; 2:1. προστιθέναι ἐπὶ τὸ αὐ. add to the total 
Ac 2:47 (see M-M.). κατὰ τὸ αυ. of pers. being together as a body in each other’s 
company, together (PEleph 1, 5 εἶναι δὲ ἡμᾶς κατὰ ταὐτό) and also with ref. to 
simultaneous presence at the same time (Aelian, VH 14, 8 δύο εἰκόνας εἰργάσατο 
Πολύκλειτος κατὰ τ. αὐ.; 3 Km 3:18)
