Meeting and Alternative Room Hire

Sometimes you need a different space to help your team to think outside of the box, some meetings need to take place away from the office, or perhaps you are a small business who only needs a formal meeting space from time to time.

We offer a range of meeting, seminar, and networking rooms, all equipped with the requisite IT equipment. And some of our spaces are little bit different.

Choose from our dance, performance and music studios, theatre-style ShowRoom, modern Chapel, Sports Hall, lecture theatres, dining halls, and bars.

‘Thanks very much to you and your colleagues for helping to ensure that our event was a great success.  The efficient service you guys provided, including dealing with urgent queries and ensuring that the foreign visitor experience, was slick and friendly. Everybody at the campus made us feel very welcome; it was great customer care. This helped us to focus on delivering the agenda and getting the most out of the participants.’ UK Statistics Authority, 2018

All of our rooms can be booked by the hour or on a half or full-day rate.
