Vacational Facilities


Weekends, evening and during vacation periods, our range of conference facilities are enhanced with the addition of four lecture theatres with capacities from 100 to 300 together with an array of academic classrooms and social space; all greatly increasing our conference capability.

We have 4 lecture theatures on campus, each providing state of the art facilities. Each lecture theature has a fully climate controlled environment and  power at every seat. The AV equipment allows sophisticated presentations to be delivered using dual, side by side, high-resolution projection systems. Each theatre is capable of making use of a wide range of different media types and features an easy to use touch-screen auditorium control system.
