Conferences at St Chad’s

St Chad’s is at the heart of the spectacular Durham City Peninsula, just across from Durham Cathedral.  We pride ourselves on having wonderful staff, being a small College we are able to devote more time to making your event run smoothly.

Our Head Chef and his dedicated and experienced catering staff provide excellent cuisine, giving variety and style to all our dishes.  Choose from informal buffets to elegant dining.

Groups of 25 to 150 delegates can meet both for day or residential conferences. Everyone can be accommodated on one site in our historic buildings and the whole group can dine together in our elegant dining hall. Larger groups can be accommodated with help from adjacent Colleges, all within a minute’s walk of our main building. Our conference, lecture and seminar rooms can accommodate 25 – 50 delegates, and larger lecture rooms are close-by, which means that your whole conference will be based centrally – all in the shadow of Durham’s historic Cathedral.
