Welcome to the Manor Road Building

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.

Facilities

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.
