Medical Sciences Teaching Centre

The Medical Sciences Teaching Centre opened in 2002 and is one of the most sought-after conference venues in Oxford. It is sited at the rear of the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, close to the city centre.

The teaching centre houses a 216-seat lecture theatre, which is fully equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and technical facilities, as well as a seven-metre wide screen for dual projection. An overflow facility to a seminar room (accommodating an additional 60 people) has two-way sound to the lecture theatre and allows the audience to view both the speaker and the presentation simultaneously.

The ground floor of the building has a large, open circulation area with magnificent views over the University Parks. This provides an excellent venue for posters, sponsor exhibitions and refreshments during the conference.

For seminars or smaller meetings, there are seven individual seminar rooms, each with projection facilities, which can be arranged to suit your specific requirements. A large computer suite and three multi-purpose teaching laboratories make up the remainder of this impressive five-storey building and are also available for hire during the vacation periods. The MSTC now has wifi throughout the building.
