In addition to the JCR and Television Room there are a number of public rooms which may be reserved by any member of the College for public or private functions. The Chadwick Room is divisible into two rooms by a retractable partition. When opened up, it will seat up to 130 people theatre-style. The Tower Room and the Walters Room are especially suitable for meetings of societies; the Lyttelton Room is more suitable for smaller meetings. The Borradaile Room can be booked for private meals for up to 30 people. For certain types of function, the Diamond in Cripps Court may also be reserved; this is suitable for concerts, plays etc. Details of the charges for use of these rooms will be found on the Fees & Charges page .

The rooms must be booked through the Catering & Conference Office who can provide an application form. Forms are also available online from the Porters’ Lodge. Public rooms must always be left in a suitable condition for the next booking; they are often used by more than one group on the same day. Bookings must be made by a member of the College – for College societies there is no charge. The charges for others can be found on the Fees & Charges page (see Finance Section for further details).

The Dean’s permission must also be sought for use of the Hall or Gardens for any sort of function.

Any of the public rooms may be used for College events (Open Meetings, elections etc.), and must be booked in the usual way through the Catering & Conference Office. The College reserves the right to refuse or cancel bookings where the purpose is deemed to be inconsistent with the College’s charitable objectives or statutory obligations.
