Innovative and versatile

Canham Turner is an innovative, creative venue located on our beautiful main campus. With exciting new catering facilities alongside technology-rich rooms and light and airy spaces, our versatile venue is perfect for all events occasions. Some of our rooms can also be connected to create larger event spaces or separate breakout areas.

Built in 1948, Canham Turner is one of the oldest buildings on campus and blends heritage with high technology seamlessly. It is the first building at the University to be named after a woman and follows a generous £3.5 million donation from alumna Barbara Canham Turner. Barbara’s love of Victorian literature is evident throughout the building, with our meeting and events spaces named after Victorian authors.

OOOOO! Versatile, technology-rich spaces.
