George Fox Building

Beyond a foyer space brimming with natural light, the George Fox Building is home to flexible spaces full of versatility and possibility.

George Fox Building is home to Lancaster University's largest lecture theatre on campus, with a seated capacity of 350. In addition, six other large rooms are available to hire for parallel sessions, team meetings, or smaller talks for around 40-100 people.

While any of the spaces and rooms can provide the venue for a one-off meeting, exhibition, presentation or training session, having all these different spaces under one roof means the George Fox Building offers an ideal, self-contained setting for conferences, company away days and major meetings.
