Book an Event

If you are organising an event which uses the College name, you will need to fill in the below Event Request Form.

The event could be an in-person event on College property, an in-person event offsite or an online event (or any hybrid of the three).

Please read our quick guide to event bookings. There is also further guidance for term-time events.

To make a booking, please complete the Student Facility and Event Request Form.

Changes to facilities you can book

We are sorry that we are unable to book your usual event, dinner and room bookings this term.

What we can’t do at the moment:

  • Bookings that require any form of catering
  • Bookings with non-Queen’s attendees
  • Bookings on the weekend (all meeting room spaces are closed for deep cleaning)
  • Book to our normal seating capacities
  • Have standing/circulating events

In summary

  • All bookings must be seated for the duration
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times in shared indoor spaces
  • Food and drink cannot be booked or served
  • The capacities of rooms may be reduced further depending on what you are wanting to do (these are currently set for the purpose of teaching safely).
  • The activity needs to be regulated and risk assessed by you and checked by us.
  • The rule of 6: multiple groups of 6 may use a space provided the risk assessment for that space’s capacity demonstrates this is safe. Distancing measures will still apply for members of the group of 6 and between the groups of 6 unless your group of 6 contains all household members.
