Conference and Meeting Rooms


Here at Selwyn, we offer a range of traditional and contemporary spaces for events of varying sizes. Our team will be pleased to advise you on which combinations will best suit your needs, and they will follow through in meticulous detail to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day itself.


Quarry Whitehouse Auditorium

Quarry Whitehouse Auditorium tiered theatre style layout

Our new Quarry Whitehouse Auditorium is available to organisers planning conferences, lectures, presentations, training sessions and a wide range of other events.

Together with the new Bartlam Library, the Quarry Whitehouse Auditorium is part of a £13m development, funded entirely by donations from College Alumni and friends.

The flexible space offers both tiered and flat floor seating layouts. Tiered seating is available for up to 139 delegates and other layouts with the seating retracted, can fit up to 200 people.

With a light airy atmosphere, the auditorium comes equipped with extensive audio-visual technology, offering options for hybrid events, and opportunities for video recording as well as two green/dressing rooms.

A copy of our policy to cover livestreaming and recording events can be found on our Finance & Governance page. This is in place to protect the rights of those who attend or partake in hybrid events at Selwyn College.
