About / Venue hire

Venue hire

The Sainsbury Centre makes a magnificent setting for any event.

We can host corporate events, group visits, weddings, location filming, studio workshops and more.

Catering facilities

There is superb range of restaurant and catering options available during your visit. The centre's main restaurant, the Modern Life Café, is managed by an in house team.

Staying overnight

If you need accommodation for guests or large numbers of delegates and visitors, rooms at the University are available all year round.

Enjoy a relaxing stay in a beautiful campus setting, with a choice of bedrooms within beautiful architect-designed terraces. There also is optional bed and breakfast.

Our experienced hospitality team will be happy to discuss your individual requirements.
