    "Our guests yesterday could not stop complimenting us on the arrangements, the helpfulness of the staff, the food and the College in general." Elsa Strietman, Emeritus Fellow

    "We had a wonderful party on Saturday night. I wanted to thank you for your superb (and totally unflappable) organisation of the event – everything ran 100% smoothly from start to finish. The guests who stayed also commented very positively on the accommodation. Could you especially pass on thanks to the chef – everyone commented on the excellence of the food – and also to Anna who was a brilliant front-of-house for the evening. I knew I’d be proud of the College in running a slick event in a great environment, and I was!" Martin Roland, Emeritus Fellow

    "I just wanted to thank all the catering and front of house staff for a wonderful subject dinner on Friday night. The food was delicious, and everyone had a really good time. If anything, they had a bit too much fun!" Dr Evaleila Pesaran, Fellow in Politics and International Relations


    High quality audio visual equipment is available in our meeting rooms. Students must be trained by our AV technician or a house porter in how to use the equipment and this will be offered as part of your event booking process.

    • Requirements should be specified in your event booking form (log in required).
    • If you do not have training, you will not be able to use the equipment.
    • If you will be using any of the AV Equipment in Buckingham House you must have our AV Technician on site for all of your booking and you will be charged for this service as per the events price list.


    Societies with a member who is from Murray Edwards College may book rooms and receive the main meeting room free of charge and are offered discounted catering. Please log in to view our terms and conditions.


    You may not hold a party (defined as a gathering with more than five guests from outside the College) in your own room, nor in any of the College houses. Various rooms and gardens are available for meetings, dinners and parties and can be booked using the booking form. 

    Thank you so much for making yesterday a wonderful day for Michael and me and all our guests. Please thank the catering staff, everyone in Front of House and all in Events. Everyone was saying how lovely Murray Edwards College is, as many of them had never been there before. The space was perfect for us. And of course, we were so lucky with the weather. Quite a few people ate outside and stayed out most of the time. Our guests were amazed at the profusion of flowers outside. Jo Cobb's planting is so exuberant and makes people feel happy just looking at it. Thanks again, for everything. All best wishes, Joanna and Michael, 15 October 2017. (Jo Cobb is Head Gardener at Murray Edwards College)

    Music Practice

    Students wishing to use the Music Room must complete a Music Room booking form and return it to the events office. Please log in to download the form.

    Large Events

    Large events require permission from the Dean and must be organised via the events office. The Head Porter is also advised of your plans. The College Dean and Events office can guide you on booking larger functions. 

    Thank you for organising my meeting. I know it was only a small event but the room was immaculate, the IT equipment was all set up and worked and everything was perfect. I was really so proud of our lovely College and grateful to all the people 'behind the scenes' who make things run smoothly. I am really grateful to everyone - thank you very much.
