Conferences and Events

A stylish and modern events venue located within a beautiful Cambridge College.

Newnham College offers a wide variety of modern and classical meeting rooms, the largest of which seats up to 150 and is set in stunning buildings within Cambridge’s ‘hidden’ gardens.

From the award winning Cynthia Beerbower room, fitted with a full range of state of the art presentation equipment for in person and hybrid events – to the beautiful College Hall – to the rooftop meeting room, with wonderful views across Cambridge.  We are able to offer a variety of events in our many spaces.

Stroll among the 19 acres of garden, chill out if the trendy Iris cafe, enjoy the contemporary architecture and relax in one of the many bedrooms available, including 82 double en suite bedrooms.

“I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for your help to put on such a successful event. I’m so grateful for all your flexibility and helpfulness of everyone we encountered at the college. We felt lucky to work with such a friendly and responsive team at Newnham!
On top of this, the venue itself was fantastic. I heard a lot of comments about how beautiful and convenient the Dorothy Garrod building was, and many of our guests commented that they thought the accommodation was some of the best they’d experienced in Cambridge colleges. It was fantastic to be so close to town but hidden from the bustle of city centre in the beautiful gardens.” University of Cambridge Centre for Trophoblast Research, 2-3 July 2023
