A typical academic conference at West Road.

West Road Concert Hall is the largest conference facility within the University of Cambridge and is an attractive and functional conference venue in the centre of one of the most historic and beautiful of England’s cities.

The Concert Hall (499 seats) is complemented by a large, bright Foyer (340 sq. m) which is ideal for exhibitions, registration, networking and catering. These spaces are supplemented by wireless broadband Internet in the foyer, a computer room which can provide delegates with access to the Internet and printing facilities, plus 6 breakout rooms varying between 40-100 in their capacities. The Recital Room, which is the largest breakout room, provides a large and versatile space suitable for many uses. Its flat wooden floor and flexibly curtained walls make it ideal for seminars or lectures for up to 100 people, or as an additional exhibition or catering space.

Although unable to offer accommodation ourselves, we often work side by side with our neighbouring colleges to provide a range of both old and modern rooms to suit your delegates’ needs. Nearby colleges include King’s, Queens’, Robinson, Selwyn and Newnham, although, being so centrally located, many more are within easy reach. We suggest that the most comprehensive way to source accommodation in a college is through Meet Cambridge, the University’s free venue finding facility. A commission free service, their friendly and knowledgeable staff will also be able to help you with your requirements.
