Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre

Conferences & Events


One of the landmark features of today’s Worcester College site is a brand new conference centre, which is on the shortlist for the 2018 Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize for architecture. Situated by the lake, overlooking the gardens and the cricket pavilion, the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre offers a world-class venue for conferences and events. This new building is centred around the Tuanku Bainun Auditorium, an accessible and beautifully appointed lecture theatre with fixed seating for 136 delegates (and 160 with extra chairs).


Funded by Lord John Sainsbury in 1990, The Linbury Building is a dedicated conferencing and private dining venue for up to 100 guests for receptions. Enjoying a secluded location in the College’s award-winning gardens, the Linbury looks out across the Nuffield Lawn.


The Nash suites offer great flexibility and can be adapted to suit most meeting requirements. The two Nash rooms (East and West) have their own boardroom tables but can be configured either independently as stand-alone suites; or combined, with each room providing a complementary function. The retractable acoustic panels that divide these rooms make them highly adaptable. For larger groups, the two rooms can be merged into an impressive space with an overall theatre capacity for 60 delegates.
