Set on the outskirts of historic Winchester, The University of Winchester has two great campuses for your conference or event.
The main King Alfred Campus offers a diverse combination of traditional and contemporary. The campus provides a range of conference and meeting rooms including the Stripe Complex, our award winning University Centre, our brand new en-suite Burma Road accommodation, IT-Suites and exhibition space.
The West Downs Campus was originally an 18th Century boys boarding School. The building was refurbished in 2001 to become a light and modern conference centre whilst maintaining its original Victorian charm. The Grade II listed building has grown into a busy and versatile conference & wedding venue, offering both delegates and wedding parties flexible space conveniently located under one roof.
The University is a great venue for conferences, weddings, single and group accommodation bookings. Why not call the Conference Office today to arrange a show round, and we can show you what we can offer.
