Event Durham: Grey College

Residential Conferences

During University vacations Grey can accommodate residential conferences up to 80 delegates entirely within the College, situated a short 15 minute walk from the City Centre.

The College's main meeting room is in Holgate House which can hold up to 80 delegates in a theatre style. There are also 97 en suite bedrooms (including 4 twin rooms) and two small break out rooms within this purpose built Conference Centre. In addition to this there are another 2 meeting rooms and plenty of standard bedrooms (with shared bathrooms) available elsewhere in the College.

Should your conference require resources and facilities in addition to those at Grey College, then other University amenities that can be utilised. Collingwood College, which is only two minutes' walk from Grey College, has over 200 en suite bedrooms allowing nearly 300 delegates to stay in en-suite accommodation between the two Colleges. Other facilities nearby include lecture rooms for up to 500, additional bedrooms or even a Gala Dinner at Durham Castle, all situated within a short walk of the College.
