The University of Winchester has an established reputation for incredible venues perfect for accommodation, conferences, events, and networking. We offer award winning facilities for design and sustainability, with a high standard for customer service.

Within our West Downs Quarter, you will find our cutting-edge West Downs Centre which can host multiple event styles and has one of the best landscape views of Winchester.

Neighbouring the Centre is the University of Winchester Business School, originally built as an 18th century boys boarding school. In more recent times the building has become an exceptionally modern and light facility reflecting on its Victorian heritage. Prefect for smaller conferences and weddings for up to 100 people.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit our King Alfred Quarter which offers a diverse combination of traditional and contemporary architecture. The quarter boasts a range of conference and networking rooms available for small to large bookings, including our award-winning Stripe Complex.

We welcome any enquiries regarding details of our amazing venues and are more than happy to accommodate viewings so that you can ensure we are the perfect choice for your next conference or event.
