Academic Venues in Leeds
Leeds is home to three major universities; University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett and Leeds Trinity University, as well as Leeds Innovation Centre, all of which offer extensive conferencing facilities, in addition to access to leading professors and lecturers.
With a total bedstock of 6,690 and the capacity for large scale theatre-style seating (up to 870 at University of Leeds), the three universities make a significant contribution to the city’s conferencing potential.
Each can provide catering for congresses with thousands of delegates and when combined they form a vibrant campus hub, minutes from the city centre. Event organisers can also add value by tapping into the expertise of leading professors and lecturers from a comprehensive range of academic disciplines.
