What Happens Next?
Your event requirements will be circulated to venues with facilities that match your request, saving you the time of contacting each independently. Venues with availability will send details of their offer direct to you.
The venues in our portfolio include all of the undergraduate Colleges, some of the postgraduate and theological Colleges, University buildings, the Cambridge University Press, Madingley Hall, The Møller Centre, as well as hotels and other unique venues in and around the city.
We’ll get in touch after a few days to see how your plans are progressing, to check that you have received a satisfactory response, or to see if we can help any further.
Choosing a Venue & Making a Booking
Once you’ve chosen a venue, we strongly recommend that you visit it before your event and that you make a provisional booking and we'd be delighted to organise site inspections for you and any other decision makers. Please be aware that each venue has its own terms and conditions and take the time to check these in advance of any booking, as cancellation charges do apply in most instances.
The Conference and Catering Departments in our venues will take care of all your event requirements and we would be pleased to help with any enquiries that you may have regarding travel or other activities during your visit, such as guided tours or punting.
