Please see the latest information regarding the University's response to COVID-19 Coronavirus and in relation to our Conferencing Team and their activities.

On March 16th the Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a statement in regards to the COVID-19 and social distancing. The Government have increased the UK’s response by encouraging stricter measures surrounding social distancing.

These measures include advising against non-essential social contact; including avoiding pubs, clubs, restaurants and theatres as well as non-essential travel for a prolonged period.

Based on this statement we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all events and bookings in our facilities for a minimum of 12 weeks.

We appreciate this will be of immense disappointment to our patrons but our priority must be the health and safety of our customers, community and colleagues.

We will be doing our best to contact all customers with existing bookings and our hope is to postpone rather than cancel events.

If you have any questions our Conferencing phone line (01522 583761) will be open 9am until 5pm, however, as we are expecting a high volume of calls we would also recommend that you contact via email at

Once again we apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience in what is a difficult and unprecedented situation.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.
