  • Brooks Building is the perfect venue for a collaborative conference or summer school. Beyond lecture and seminar room spaces, it also contains a multi-function sports hall, drama studio and large external plaza, all of which is perfect for an event which requires diverse spaces.

All catering is provided by our in house team of chefs, with a strong emphasis on local produce and sustainability.
