Queen's Building

A Venue for all Occasions

Our modern conference facility was opened by HM The Queen, and by Her Majesty’s special permission, known as ‘The Queen’s Building’ – a unique honour for a collegiate building in Cambridge or Oxford.

When she declared the building open Her Majesty described it as “introducing a new design into an ancient setting”. The multi-purpose Queen’s Building is situated in the heart of historic Cambridge and is the perfect venue for a range of events. The imposing Theatre can host a major symposium for up to 130 delegates, concerts, plays and conferences. The adjoining semi-circular Harrods Room at the top of the Queen’s Building is one of the most interesting meeting rooms in Cambridge with its vista of the city to the west and the splendour of the Fellows’ Garden to the east. The Timmy Hele Room and the Seminar Room on the ground floor are useful break-out rooms or can be set for meetings and seminars.

The Theatre can be hired on an hourly basis for up to three hours. All three floors are serviced by a lift and there is Wi-Fi throughout the building. The nearby Old Library makes a splendid contrast for a refreshment break or conference lunch.
