Venue Hire

Events Central is nestled in the heart of the leafy University of Hull campus. We’re renowned for the beautiful campus, historic architecture and equally beautiful surroundings with colours that constantly change with the seasons.

We’re just ten minutes by car from Hull city centre and next door to the village of Cottingham, so getting here is quick and convenient. We’re well connected by public transport, with several bus stops running along the front and back of campus. Find out more in our Venue Hire Booklet. 

A multi-functional and cost-effective setting for any event, Events Central has four venues to choose from, each with their own size, look and feel. These can be adapted and themed however you wish to meet your needs, just tell us what you need. 

Our venues are open on a daily basis and are enjoyed by thousands of discerning students who come for a bite to eat, to catch up with friends in the student haven/kitchen areas, a quiet coffee or to dance the night away.

We also operate public events such as Bongo’s Bingo and specialise in live gigs. Asylum has attracted big-name acts like Liam Fray, Tinie Tempah, Nick Grimshaw and Professor Green, as well as our outdoor areas hosting the likes of Tom Odell – just to name-drop a few.

Available to book for your exclusive use, find out for yourself why our venues are so popular with our students.
