Lecture theatres

Walk in the footsteps of notable academics and host your meeting from one of our many lecture theatres.

Choose from a variety of layout styles, from tiered seating for a traditional feel to flat-floored rooms to allow flexibility. The theatres can offer a range of seating capacities to suit your meeting or conference, and are situated centrally on the University of Birmingham’s leafy campus, with excellent transport links nearby.

Many of the lecture theatres have additional breakout areas, to enjoy your lunch while networking, or relax over tea or coffee.
