George VI, then Duke of York, laid the foundation stone of the University of Hull in 1928. Since then, Hull has achieved an impressive history in the fields of sciences and engineering, arts, social sciences, health and social care and education.
Impressively, the university is the birthplace of LCD. The discovery in 1972 by George Gray, led to Hull becoming the first university to gain the Queen's Award for Technological Achievement.
In keeping with Hull’s reputation as one of the friendliest universities, their approachable events coordinators help you choose the right venue and facilities from a broad range available across the campuses. A traditional auditorium seats up to 514 and is suitable for both public performances and conferences.
The artcafé is handily situated in the circulation area and adjacent to the University Art Gallery for refreshments and unwinding.
