Gulbenkian Arts Centre and beyond

Being located at the heart of the campus, there are plenty of options for additional space if required. Gulbenkian is situated near both Templeman Library and Grimond, which house lecture theatres, additional seminar rooms and foyer areas.

Alternatively, there are plenty of open green spaces near Gulbenkian which are the perfect spot to enjoy a BBQ for lunch, or erect a Marquee for additional exhibition space.

We have plenty of accommodation options nearby, single en-suite rooms in 5* graded Becket Court, or single and double en-suite rooms in Tyler Court or Keynes College

We also offer a bespoke Event Management Service which can help support you and ensure the smooth running of your event as we can manage guest registration, payments and logistics.
