Take advantage of the variety and flexibility of the rooms and facilities on offer: award ceremonies with stage and screen in the Hall, debates in the Keynes Lecture Theatre, training sessions or corporate events in our seminar rooms and refreshments in our historic courtyards.

Whatever your requirements, our dedicated team can accommodate your every need.

Day Meetings

If you're looking for meeting rooms with outstanding views of the Chapel, Front Court and Webb's court the three interconnecting Saltmarsh Rooms provide you with the ultimate setting. The Dining Room will hold up to 40 delegates theatre style or boardroom style for 20 delegates with the use of the Reception Room and Study for well earned refreshments.

The recently refurbished Beves Room is ideal for meetings of up to 65 delegates. It is a lovely light room overlooking the private Provost's Lodge, Webb's Court and the Library. The Beves is versatile offering an array of set ups including cabaret for 35 delegates and U-shaped for 30 delegates. The Beves has air-conditioning keeping your delegates cool in the summer but also has access to the terrace in the warmer months.

The minimum number for both the Saltmarsh Rooms and the Beves is 10 delegates. For larger meetings, the Keynes Lecture Theatre and adjoining Chetwynd Room provides a more modern location yet with views over the historic King's Parade and the Chetwynd Court.

Let your delegates pace corridors once trod by our numerous famous alumni such as John Maynard Keynes, the influential and celebrated economist, after whom the lecture theatre is named. The Lecture Theatre can hold up to 157 delegates theatre style with the use of the Chetwynd Room for refreshments. The minimum number for the Keynes Lecture Theatre is 80 delegates.

Residential Conferences

King's College is perfectly located for residential conferences with the heart of the city centre just outside the front gates and the beautiful river Cam running through the grounds.

King's has meeting rooms with outstanding views of the Chapel, Front Court and Webb's Court for up to 60 guests and a lecture theatre for up to 157 with a spacious refreshment room and views over the historic King's Parade and the Chetwynd Court.

Your delegates can spend the night in accommodation where some of the brightest young people live during their studies here in the College.

With accommodation in great locations overlooking the Market Square, views of the Chapel and looking out onto the river Cam with inexpert punters floating by, your delegates will be the envy of others visiting Cambridge.

Corporate Lunches

The charming and traditional Saltmarsh Rooms are ideal for corporate lunches.

The three interconnecting rooms are fine examples of Georgian grace and proportions with ceiling-high sash windows giving views of the Chapel, Front Lawn and Webb's Court.

The Saltmarsh Study and Dining Room can be hired individually or all three rooms can be hired as a suite. The Dining Room will comfortably accommodate 30 guests, the Reception Room 16 guests and the study 12 guests.

For a slightly larger group, the Beves Room is the ideal solution. A spacious room overlooking Webb's court, the Provost's Lodge and the library, the Beves offers dining for up to 50 guests. The minimum number for these rooms is 10 guests.
