Room Booking Costs

University pool teaching rooms are popular venues out of hours for student societies, local common interest groups and, in vacations, national and international conferences.

  • The Standard Rate applies to external (commercial) bookings such as conferences. 
  • The Associate rate applies to bookings made by local community groups and to internal (non-core) bookings. 
  • Core bookings refers to University business such as teaching and related activities for which there is no charge.

Where a booking is made for a whole day (or multiples thereof) the charges will be capped at twice the four-hourly rate, or 6 times the hourly rate for each day booked.

For further details and clarification of the facilities included please contact Timetabling Support and Room Bookings.
