About the venue

Being part of a university that’s ranked Top 10 in three major national league tables is only the start of what we’ve got to boast about at Lancaster Conferences+.

Within our award-winning campus and facilities at Lancaster University, we have the perfect space for a broad range of events. Rooms for meetings, halls for banquets, suites for receptions and theatres for lectures. We have meeting facilities and 80 dedicated guest rooms available all year round, rising to space for 800 delegates during the Easter and Summer periods. Our AIM accredited team will guide you from your first steps of planning to last-minute requests, whatever your needs we’re here to help. We know it’s the smaller details that make an event memorable and our allergen-accredited catering team can offer a Soil Associations ‘Food for Life’ Gold & Silver dining experience that’s sure to exceed expectations. For all the new technology emerging to connect colleagues, spread information and enable collaboration, there’s no replacement for gathering to meet in person. A conference with us offers the chance to bring together hundreds of delegates in large-scale events set against the stunning backdrop of our parkland campus. Easily accessible via road, rail and bicycle and within just 70 miles of Manchester’s International Airport, a conference held at Lancaster offers stunning countryside surroundings whilst still being located in the heart of everything your delegates need.
