Contemporary meeting rooms in a great central location.

Staff House offers professional, contemporary meeting rooms for meetings, conferences, training and interviews all year round. Located together on the third floor, these meeting rooms are ideal for important individual meetings, or the flexibility and convenience of multiple breakout rooms in the same space. The Noble Room on the second floor provides a larger alternative for conferencing, receptions and dining on evenings and weekends.

A range of catering is available from the hospitality menu. Choose from breakfast pastries and refreshments to buffet lunches, all brought to your meeting room fresh from the Staff House kitchen. If you’d prefer to keep it casual and leave your guests to it, the Noble Room offers its own traditional lunch menu on the second floor.

Unfortunately, Staff House has very limited accessibility at present. The building has steps at its main entrance. A permanent ramp is located at the entrance to the Bratby Bar on the University Square side of the building (entry before 11.30am available by prior arrangement). There is a small standard lift to all floors, which will not accommodate wheelchairs. There are no accessible bathroom facilities on the third floor, where meeting rooms are located. If you’re booking Staff House for guests with access requirements, please let us know; we may suggest an alternative venue for you.
