Facilities and Room Bookings

The RAI has two seminar rooms on the garden level available for hire.

One room is set up ‘conference-style’ for approximately 20 people, and the other can accommodate up to 60 people ‘lecture-style’. The larger of these rooms can be split into two smaller rooms; alternatively, both rooms can be joined to create one large room to accommodate a maximum of 100 people ‘lecture-style’. There is also a common room area which can be used as breakout space and for refreshments.

We have a full suite of audio-visual equipment including high quality cameras and microphones for ‘hybrid’ online and in-person events. Discounts are available for University of Oxford bookings.

Seminar room accessibility

There is step-free access to the seminar rooms via a lift in the foyer (entry doors are 69 centimetres/31 inches wide). Once you reach the garden level, there is a short walk to the seminar rooms (approximately 18 metres/60 feet to the small seminar room and 22 metres/72 feet to the large seminar room).
