Robinson College provides a unique environment for national and international conferences, being built with conferences very much in mind right from the outset. Set in several acres of attractive wooded gardens yet only a few minutes' walk from the city centre and the famous "Backs", the College building is architecturally striking and highly functional.

The College has been a venue for residential and non-residential conferences and meetings since 1981 and over the years has steadily grown in experience and reputation. It is now considered by conference organisers and delegates to be one of the leading university conference venues in the UK. Robinson College has been voted as one of the Best Academic Venues in the country at the Meetings and Incentive Travel Awards achieving Bronze in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 (votes cast by customers).

In September 2015 we added a new meetings and events space, the Crausaz Wordsworth Building offering flat floor cabaret and classroom style set ups along with three breakout rooms and bright spacious foyer area  all contained within the same building, and is now our best conferencing space for all your event needs.

Why Robinson?

We provide a great, accessible space, for your conferencing needs. We have experienced conference staff on hand to help advise and deliver the best conference for you, allowing the organisation process to be smooth. 

With a variety of great spaces, ranging from the Crausaz Wordsworth Building and Auditorium to Umney Suite and Dining Hall, we can cater for large groups for conferences or events, as well as being able to host smaller meetings and events using our other meeting rooms. With onsite accomodation and dining available, we believe meeting at Robinson will truly be a great experience for all.
