Capacity for up to 10,000 people across our Preston campus.
The University of Central Lancashire is an international University tracing its roots back to 1828 and leading the way in modern learning today.
We’ve spent £200 million on transforming our Preston Campus to give it a world-class makeover. Including University Square, our modern, accessible outdoor venue with capacity for live music, sporting and corporate events. At over 2000m2 it holds up to 4000 people (dependent on event set-up), with data and power infrastructure and a premises licence. Our Rooftop Terrace overlooking Preston is ideal for corporate receptions with a capacity of up to 120 people.
We have a range of lecture theatres with capacities between 36 and 472 and meeting rooms for 1 to 120 people. We also have specialist spaces, from laboratories, clinics and training areas such as our crime scene flats and moot courtroom.
Our spaces are available for filming, with the best availability between May and August.
Our catering team can provide a variety of options suitable for any event. We also regularly work with external caterers, providing outdoor vendors, VIP options and themed menus.
Preston City Campus is easily accessible via rail, bus and bike. We are just over 2 hours from London, Glasgow and Edinburgh by train, with a direct train to Manchester Airport. Preston Railway Station is a 10-minute walk or 2-minute taxi ride. We have parking (dependent on availability), and there is public parking nearby.
