About the venue

The Sackville Street Building is a blend of 19th and early 20th century styles. The opulent main entrance on Sackville Street gives access to the Entrance Hall, which is a traditional venue for buffets and receptions with its stained glass windows and lofty ceiling.

On the first floor, up the grand staircase from the Entrance Hall, is the Great Hall, which seats up to 300 with a formal stage, and features the portraits of past Vice-Chancellors around the walls.

K3 is located at the top of the building and is a popular choice for professional examination bodies because of its central location and large capacity for examinations.
