Leicester Conferences is the University of Leicester's specialist conference and events provider, offering guests anything from one-off meals or dinner parties to long term residential conferences with full use of meeting rooms and facilities. Our venues are split across two main sites; energetic City Hub Suites on the main University campus near the city centre and picturesque Oadby Conference Centres, located three miles away in leafy suburbia, complete with Botanic Gardens and period Edwardian houses.
At Leicester Conferences we are passionate about providing you with the best possible means for creating your perfect event. Be it a venue, facilities, catering and hospitality or customer service, our staff are genuinely friendly and helpful and no request is too great or concern too small. Our success is achieved through your success, so enabling you to achieve the best for your delegates is firmly rooted in our own interests.

Oadby Conference Centres
Set in mature botanic gardens and with a rich heritage of elegant and historic buildings, our Oadby conference centres offer a tranquil alternative to City Hub's energetic pace. Choose from a range of meeting spaces including Stamford Court, our recently refurbished premier conference centre. Our Oadby meeting rooms boast traditional features such as stained glass windows and original art work, including an integrated oil painting of St George and the Dragon dating back to 1904.

With rooms ranging from 10 to 300 in capacity, we have something to suit a wide range of occasions and much of our on-site accommodation is rated 4 Star by Visit Britain. Free car parking is also available on-site and delegates can make use of our brand new Sports Centre which offers a state-of-the-art gymnasium and good size swimming pool completely free of charge.

City Hub Suites
Conveniently located at the centre of the University's city campus, the Charles Wilson Building accommodates our City Hub Suites offering flexible and relaxed meeting spaces for anything between 10 to 150 people. For larger groups, the University has many purpose built lecture theatres with state-of-the-art presentation facilities and tiered or flat seating. These accommodate between 68 and 500 people and can form the basis for your conference or part of an integrated schedule with other seminar rooms for more interactive group discussion.
City Hub also caters for up to 120 dinner guests in our newly refurbished restaurant overlooking Leicester's attractive Victoria Park. With licensed bars and large hospitality areas, our in-house catering service is award winning and adaptable to suit your needs. Help us to create your perfect menu, accommodating a range of dietary requirements, however formal or informal the event. As well as sit-down dinners, we cater for working breakfasts and lunches, or simply drinks and snacks, delivered directly to your location in one of our various seminar rooms.

Many conference and catering venues provide panoramic views of Leicester and the county and all are located a short walk from the city centre via a unique walkway of historic interest; New Walk. This charming tree lined Victorian thoroughfare provides easy access from the University to the city centre and is a delightful way for delegates to explore the city.

Award-winning Cuisine
Our award winning cuisine has gone from strength to strength with the introduction of our Executive Head Chef. All meals are carefully and lovingly planned and prepared to suit the specific needs of our customers.
