Room Booking


Dunelm House plays host to a range of student activity, ranging from smaller committee meetings through to our sell-out gigs and dance nights such as Planet of Sound. You can book any of our rooms to stage your own events; just about anything you like can be arranged so long as you stay within our licence and terms and conditions. We have dedicated catering, technical and other staff and a wide range of equipment that can all be at your disposal.
