The Arumugam Building

The Arumugam meeting rooms offer a modern, bright and airy facility located above the College Porter’s Lodge/reception area. Each floor of the building has large picture windows allowing plenty of natural light into the space and all rooms/configurations come with built-in AV equipment plus use of a balcony area (one on each level) for refreshment service.

 

The top floor meeting room provides a large, flat meeting space with flexible furniture and room configurations for up to 70 guests. This room is available to hire year-round and comes with an adjoining indoor balcony area for refreshment service. It is possible to sub-divide the room into two smaller spaces in advance of an event arriving although its standard layout is as one large meeting space.

 

During vacations, the first floor of the building offers further facilities on either a stand-alone or larger meeting suite basis. This floor can either be set up as one large room (identical in size to the room above) or sub-divided into 2 smaller rooms (seating up to 25 guests in each).

 

Please note that these rooms are located on the first and second floors and that access to them is via stairs only.

One Floor of the Arumugam Building - one large room

General

The Arumugam Building is part of the later additions to the college architecture. It houses our Porter’s Lodge on the ground floor and modern seminar rooms on both the first and second floors. Each seminar room floor includes a bright and airy indoor balcony (where refreshments can be served) and a large meeting room (that can be sub-divided into two using high quality dividers). For ease of use, the first floor is usually kept divided into two smaller rooms and the second floor kept open as one large room. It is, however, perfectly possible to change this arrangement in advance in order to meet specifc event needs.

 

When set as one large room, events are provided with a large, flat meeting space with a range of flexible furniture layouts. AV equipment is built-in and large picture windows at either end (with blinds for use during presentations) flood the room with natural light.

 

As one large room, the space measures 8.2 metres by 12.8. metres (approx.)

Please note that there is no formal disabled access to the 1st and 2nd floors of the Arumugam Building.

One Floor of the Arumugam Building - two smaller rooms

General

For ease of use, the first floor is usually kept divided into two rooms and the second floor kept as one large room. It is, however, perfectly possible to change this arrangement in advance in order to meet users’ needs.

 

When one floor is sub-divided, the space offers 2 smaller meeting rooms, each with AV equipment and a large window at one end. Furniture layouts are relatively flexible within the maximum capacities for each room. Adjoining both rooms is a light and airy indoor balcony where refreshments can be served.

 

This 2-room layout is most usually used in conjunction with the other floor of the building (during college vacations) to form the ‘Arumugam Suite’. That suite of rooms then offers events a large, open plan plenary room plus two smaller breakout rooms (or one larger one for posters for example if the divider is removed) plus refreshment areas.

 

Please note that there is no formal diabled access to these meeting spaces and they are located upstairs.

 

When divided into two smaller rooms, each room measures 6.4 metres by 8.2 metres (approx).
