Conference Facilities


What we do

The Department of Physics welcomes other University departments and external companies/organisations to use its meeting rooms and conference facilities known as the Martin Wood Complex in the University vacation period (see the term dates to calculate availability). PLEASE NOTE that due to major building work we will not be taking bookings from 15th March 2015 onwards until further notice.

We have an experienced team dedicated to overseeing every detail of the event, including advice on general enquiries and the service of in-house technical staff. Please contact the conference team.

We have our own in house catering team. If you have any catering requirements for meetings, conferences or events please contact the catering staff directly to discuss your requirements.

For meetings which require overnight accommodation, we co-ordinate with nearby Colleges, such as St Anne's and Lady Margaret Hall. We would be pleased to facilitate contact with the colleges.

Please note that the University has a no smoking policy within its premises and that eating is not permitted within any of the meeting rooms themselves.

The Martin Wood Complex is located within a 10 minute walk from the heart of historic Oxford and situated right next to the beautiful University Parks.
