About the venue

Oddfellows Hall brings you 21st Century meeting space with the grandeur of a Grade II listed building.

The building is impressive inside and out and is a proud reminder of the University's and Manchester's heritage and also striking against the University's newly built Engineering Buildings, which are ultra-modern and contemporary.

The intricate Edwardian Baroque style of Oddfellows Hall delivers elaborate, highly decorative features throughout and the meeting rooms, available for booking all year round, have been sympathetically restored whilst offering modern meeting spaces.

The names of some of the rooms reference the history of Oddfellows Hall ,when it belonged to Oddfellows Society, including the crest embedded into the stunning stained glass window on the staircase which represents the society's motto: friendship, love and truth.

There are a total of 13 rooms, seating 6 boardroom to 50 classroom style, ideal for interviews, away days, training events and smaller conferences.

The Beehive restaurant on the ground floor offers dining for 128, and there are more informal catering spaces for 20 to 50 within the venue.
