Charles Carter

For smaller-scale conferences and events, Charles Carter is a stylish and sustainable building, built to an Excellent BREEAM standard.

Home to a range of spaces, the Charles Carter building can act as a self-contained venue for smaller conferences, or as an extra resource for talks, meetings, and additional sessions as part of a larger, more complex conference event on campus.

The atrium provides a light, open heart to the building. The airy space is ideal for receptions and refreshments, or for networking in between meetings. Throughout the building, modern standards mean high-quality AV equipment, matched only by the support and service our events team offers.

Charles Carter Venue Capacity

On the ground floor, the building is home to five spacious rooms for presentations and discussions, the largest of which can hold up to 54 people, together with three smaller meeting rooms with space for 20 people. Charles Carter is available to hire during University vacation periods.
