University of Leeds
Whatever the size, scale or format you have in mind for your event, we have a broad range of venues to choose from. Each of our spaces provides an environment to facilitate effective communication, while featuring a point of difference in its heritage, design, facilities and subject matter, to enhance your delegates’ experience.
From traditional and historically rich, to contemporary and architecturally unique – all of our venues will enable you to gather, engage and inspire your delegates, for memorable and lasting impact.
From intimate board meetings in the contemporary setting of University House, to “Harvard Style” collaborative lectures for up to 240 delegates in our new state-of-the-art Esther Simpson Building. Or for large-scale congresses, conventions and exhibitions, the 1800sqm Exhibition Centre is a versatile canvas for designing a tailor-made programme, with sufficient space for separate breakout, seminar and hospitality areas.
