It was a great event and the space worked very well for us – it created good movement for the teams and there was enough space to move around. Your staff were super friendly, the rooms were well setup and everything worked.

The space itself is historic and the rooms we used were spacious and smart. The lay-out also worked well for us, having the break-out sessions easily accessible from the main space. - Principal Programme Officer, London Anchor Institutions Network

The facilities offered at Senate House made it a perfect place to launch the first ever SOAS Alumni & Friends Weekend. Beveridge Hall is elegantly furnished, and remarkably, it allows speakers to retain an intimacy with a large audience of up to 450 people. It must be one of the best lecture halls of its size. Macmillan Hall was also a great place to host a pre-event reception. And the UoL staffs were a pleasure to work with throughout.
