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.
We're nestled in the heart of the leafy University of Hull campus - renowned for its historic architecture and beautiful natural surroundings, with colours that change with the seasons. What's more, we're one of the cheapest venues around with room hire from just £30.
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. Find out more in our Venue Hire Booklet.
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.
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.
All our venue layouts can be adapted to suit your needs. Please refer to our capacity table.
We are happy to meet with you to discuss specific requirements in further detail. We can also provide catering for your events.
