About Us

Located in the heart of the city, York St John University is a unique venue to host your conference or meeting. Our fantastic array of meeting spaces mean we can offer facilities for as few as two people to lecture theatres seating 250.

York has excellent transport links with London only 2 hours by train and Edinburgh just 2½ hours away. The short 10 minute walk from York station to the University will take you through the beautiful and historic city centre. The nearest airport can be reached in about an hour.

The conference team is committed to providing you with the highest level of service. A member of the conference team will be on hand to welcome you and your guests. Our friendly reception team will also check your guests in on arrival if they are staying at our facilities.

The Porters’ Lodge is manned Monday to Friday 7.00am - 9.00pm and 8.00am - 2.00pm on Saturdays should any of your guests have any requirements when a member of the conference team is not available.
