Designed by award-winning architect Sir Norman Foster, Manor Road Building offers an impressive modern backdrop for conferences and events. Our facilities are available throughout July, August, September, April, and in early January, in line with University vacations. Located just a short walk from the centre of Oxford, on the bank of a tributary of the River Cherwell, Manor Road Building has friendly staff to welcome your delegates.
With a tiered Lecture Theatre for 120 people, and an array of boardrooms and lecture style rooms, we can accommodate small groups of 10, up to larger-scale events for over 100 participants. Technical support is on hand throughout the day to ensure the smooth running of your event. Our in-house caterers can offer a working lunch, buffet or wine reception for your delegates while they relax on the sofas in our common room. There is limited car parking available.
There are a selection of Audio Visual Aids for presentations: Data Projectors, Laptops, Overhead Projectors, and White Boards are included in the hire charge subject to request.
The Common Room is located on the first floor next to the cafeteria. It is a quiet area for staff and students from the six departments in Manor Road Building and the Social Science Library to take a break. It is reserved on occasion for conference refreshments.
There is a disabled access door at reception. Disabled toilets are on each floor. An infra-red hearing loop is available by request in each of the teaching rooms. A disabled evacuation chair is located at reception.
