Lecture Theatres

Spaces designed for learning, communication and discovery.

As a global University, teaching and learning spaces are fundamental to what happens here every day. Help your delegates push the boundaries of knowledge at your next conference, in purpose-built lecture theatres with a variety of layouts and sizes.

These lecture theatres are all located centrally, so your delegates never have more than a few minutes’ walk between rooms.
