How much does it cost?

The standard day rate for booking an external space for an event is £2500. This applies to external organisations only. There will be no charge for student/University organised events.


How far in advance do I need to book?

If the event for which space is being requested is a major undertaking, a 6 week notification period is required. Examples of this include Open Days, Freshers’ week, external filming shoots lasting more than an hour.

We aim to approve all applications as quickly as possible. Occasionally, we might need more details about your event, which may impact the response time.
