Robinson College provides a unique environment for national and international conferences.

From the outset Robinson College was planned with the needs of conferences very much in mind. Set in several acres of attractive wooded gardens yet only a few minutes' walk from the city centre and the famous "Backs", the College building is architecturally striking and highly functional.

The College has been a venue for residential and non-residential conferences and meetings since 1981 and over the years has steadily grown in experience and reputation. It is now considered by conference organisers and delegates to be one of the leading university conference venues in the UK. Robinson College has been voted as one of the Best Academic Venues in the country at the Meetings and Incentive Travel Awards achieving Bronze in 2014, 2015 & 2016 (votes cast by customers).

The College cuisine is of a very high standard and has a well-deserved reputation for its quality. The enthusiastic team of chefs prepare creative and exciting menus using only the freshest ingredients and wherever possible, ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

The style of catering can be adapted to suit any particular requirement. Whatever the function, a wide selection of menus can be provided, including buffets, receptions, dinners and the most elaborate of banquets. The College is committed to sustainable catering and is proud of its Food Ethics policy.
