Uniquely amongst the Cambridge Colleges, Churchill College was founded specifically to pursue excellence in the teaching and research of science, engineering and technology. This underpins our culture of informality, flexibility and search for continuous improvement.
The architecture pays reference to the traditional vernacular of inter-linked courtyards, but the style is decidedly contemporary; the open parkland setting where visitors are free to stroll or play games on the grass is inspiring and relaxing; and the presence of the world famous Churchill Archive Centre, offers the chance to supplement traditional conference activities with talks and exhibitions about some of the most significant political leaders of the 20th century.
The largest dining hall in Cambridge, this voluminous flexible space is a blank canvas which can be used for traditional college dining, themed events with sets and staging or dining with dancing for up to 266 guests.
Wolfson Theatre (t)
An air-conditioned theatre with tiered seating for 235 (and additional temporary seating for 64.) A full proscenium stage offers front projection along with full theatrical lighting and a surround sound system to ensure every presentation is memorable for its professionalism and visual impact.
The lobby of the Wolfson Hall provides an informal lounge area for event delegates. This area offers a business centre for conferences with PC terminals with free broadband internet access, tables for those wishing to connect their lap tops to the free WiFi service, and a dedicated conference office with printing, copying and facsimile facilities on hand.
Fellows' Dining Room
The collection of contemporary art, which adorns the walls of this formal dining room, facilitates the juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary culture giving this room an unusual ambience, making every event a memorable one.
The Cockcroft Room is an ideal location for the smaller gathering. The Drawing Room adjacent to the Cockcroft Room is ideal for pre-dinner drinks or a more informal reception area.
Located adjacent to the main College buildings, this wood panelled space is ideal as a syndicate or breakout space in conjunction with a larger conference.
The main concourse is a spacious walkway that leads from the Porters' Lodge to the heart of the College. In summer the wall of windows can be opened to enable guests to spill out onto the lawns and seating , or take refuge in the shade of the magnificent oak tree planted at the College's foundation. With level access from all aspects the concourse is perfectly suited for combining delegate registration, informal receptions and exhibitions.
Situated off the Wolfson Hall foyer, this room can be used in conjunction with the theatre as a breakout space or in its own right as a meeting room. The wall of windows with inspiring views across the grounds gives a sense of tranquillity, whilst plentiful daylight helps to illuminate the room which is equipped with an "AV wall" to facilitate seamless presentations as well as free WiFi access.
On the first floor of the main College building, with views of the College lawn to one aspect and the extensive playing fields to the other, this light, bright space is equipped with an AV wall to ensure that presentations are seamless and trouble free.
Adjoining the main concourse, the Buttery lies at the heart of the College. Open throughout the day for snacks and drinks, a glass panelled area can be sectioned off for private receptions and buffets, screenings of major sporting fixtures , or providing a "chill out space" for smaller parties. Free WiFi access enables guests to multi-task - catching-up with the emails whilst relaxing with a refreshing drink, and a piano is available for those with a musical bent.
Jock Colville Hall
This purpose-built exhibition hall is a dramatic space, lending formality and grace to any conference exhibition, display or gathering.
JCR Games Room
A recently refurbished ground-floor room situated at the end of the main Concourse, notable for its large windows looking out across the playing fields. This room is available during the University's vacation periods.
Seminar Room 1
A small training room featuring an "AV wall" and natural daylight. Conveniently located adjacent to the Wolfson Hall, it can be used for syndicate and break out meetings or as a Press or Green Room during larger events in the Wolfson Hall.
Seminar Room 2
A smaller room located of the main Concourse suitable as a boardroom syndicate meeting room or as an additional organiser’s office.
Seminar Rooms 3 and 4
Located away from the main College buildings within the peaceful graduate accommodation area, this flexible space can be divided into two sections for syndicate work or opened into a single larger room. A sheltered terrace provides an additional area for delegates in the summer.
Churchill College is pleased to be able to offer a marquee site within the grounds. The College can recommend marquee suppliers for events from 200 to 400 delegates or client's can use their own marquee suppliers subject to the College's approval.

"Thank you for all the hard work you and your team put in on Saturday. Everything about the welcome and service from the College was excellent – thank you so much. I did not get to see Tim at the end so please pass on my thanks to the technical crew. Jane and I did manage to say thank you to Scott but just to reiterate the quality of the food and the whole experience was first class" "
