The University boasts several prestigious venues around Campus of which Elphinstone Hall, The Linklater Rooms, and those located in Kings College Conference Centre, are in most demand.

Though the Room Hire Charge has been removed, there are essential operational costs associated with the provision of these venues and the delivery of services which require to be provided for; cleaning the venue before and after each event, setting up the room layout and subsequent clearing down, the provision of utilities, ongoing statutory maintenance, repairs and renewals of equipment and furniture as well as maintaining appropriate venue licensing.

(A)    12% of the total of all costs, inclusive of catering costs, AV equipment, technician fees, cloth hire, and other sundry items and services.

or

(B)     A Flat facility fee of £160.00 per venue, per day where only the venue is booked and no additional provision is required
