    "I'd just like to say a thank you for all that you did for my family birthday lunch on the 19th of March - you made everyone feel welcome and relaxed. Everybody seems to have enjoyed it and the food was wonderful as well. So thank you to you and all the other staff! In term time as well, Medwards is such a welcoming place and the Dome food great as well." Georgie Illingworth, 19 March 2016


    High quality audio visual equipment is available in our meeting rooms. Students must be trained by our AV technician or a house porter in how to use the equipment and this will be offered as part of your event booking process.

    • Requirements should be specified in your event booking form (log in required).
    • If you do not have training, you will not be able to use the equipment.
    • If you will be using any of the AV Equipment in Buckingham House you must have our AV Technician on site for all of your booking and you will be charged for this service as per the events price list.


    Societies with a member who is from Murray Edwards College may book rooms and receive the main meeting room free of charge and are offered discounted catering. Please log in to view our terms and conditions.


    You may not hold a party (defined as a gathering with more than five guests from outside the College) in your own room, nor in any of the College houses. Various rooms and gardens are available for meetings, dinners and parties and can be booked using the booking form. 

    Music Practice

    Students wishing to use the Music Room must complete a Music Room booking form and return it to the events office. Please log in to download the form.

    Large Events

    Large events require permission from the Dean and must be organised via the events office. The Head Porter is also advised of your plans. The College Dean and Events office can guide you on booking larger functions. 

    Thank you for organising my meeting. I know it was only a small event but the room was immaculate, the IT equipment was all set up and worked and everything was perfect. I was really so proud of our lovely College and grateful to all the people 'behind the scenes' who make things run smoothly. I am really grateful to everyone - thank you very much.
